A park in Sydney is set to be renamed Equality Green to commemorate the moment when Australians turned equal marriage into reality for their country. More than 30,000 people gathered in Prince Alfred Park to hear the result of Australia’s Marriage Law Postal Survey a year ago. Mayor of Sydney Clover Moore passed a motion last week that the south-western lawn of Prince Alfred Park should be called Equality Green from now on.“It’s just over a year ago that thousands of us were here. And we were very excited, and we were very anxious.” said the Mayor in the video with a proposal to rename the park, promising that it would “record forever that very historic moment when, across Australia, 60 percent of Australians voted for marriage equality.” She also had a flashback to last year when she found out that marriage equality was approved. “Cheers and jubilant shouts of ‘yes’ rang out across the park,” she said, “After years of campaigning, and months of enduring the hurt and hostility caused by the survey, it was time to celebrate”.
