Marriage banners bear fruit for charities

Sat 9 Nov 2013 In: New Zealand Daily News View at Wayback

Barron and Wall with a set of the banners Two banners marking the passage of the marriage equality bill have raised more than $2,300 for glbti charities. James Barron joined forces with Labour MP Louisa Wall to have the Time Magazine cover style pieces signed by MPs, with Wall herself, Prime Minister John Key, Kevin Hague, Maurice Williamson and Tau Henare putting their pen to them. One set is at Te Papa, which Barron says requested memorabilia to forever remember New Zealand’s campaign for marriage equality, while another set is in Parliament’s Rainbow Room. Another pair was auctioned at the Gay Auckland Business Association Charity Auction, which raises funds for various glbti causes. The final lot was sold on Trade Me to raise money for the AIDS Memorial Quilt.
