LGBT advocates in Australia are hoping to raise awareness and “sweeten public opinion” for marriage equality with the Ice Cream Truck of Love, which will be traveling the country spreading the message that “everyone deserves the chance to marry the person they love, no matter what the flavor.” As Adrian Fernand, the man behind the campaign, explained on YouTube: “Some people like vanilla. Others might like strawberry. And some people like chocolate. ‘What if I were to say this person isn’t allowed ice cream, simply because I don’t like chocolate. Now that wouldn’t be fair now would it? ‘That’s why we believe everybody should have ice cream, no matter which flavor they like”:

The Australian senate is “currently discussing legalizing gay marriage a national public inquiry revealed ‘unprecedented’ support for reform.”
