It is past time for Marriage Equality Sunshine Coast

As a family owned and operated regional portal, we have always made a conscious decision to support ALL local Sunshine Coast community organisations equally, without fear or favour.

Since we first went live in 2002 we noted that LGBT events or items of news never seemed to be given the same prominence as that of say a local sporting or church organisation. We have always found this attitude to be rather disappointing as we don’t think this really illustrates the sort of inclusive ‘fair go’ nature of the Sunshine Coast community. Over the years this sentiment has improved though still has a long way to go.

We have never felt that we needed to actually advocate for equality as such.

  • We have always uploaded LGBT events or items of news as part of our community support.
  • We have now and in the past have had LGBT staff.

We felt we illustrated our belief in equality by our actions and it therefore did not need to be stated as such.

Upon reflection and considering the state of the current Marriage Equality debate, particularly certain elements in the media, it behoves us to be more vocal in our support of ‘Equality’ and we hope by doing so that we can encourage other businesses to consider the importance of being part of an inclusive Sunshine Coast community.

Australian Marriage Equality Incorporated are doing a great job of not only advancing the rights of Australian LGBT citizens to marry, but of also thinking outside the box with their encouraging of Corporate, Local Business, Non Profits etc. to declare their support for Marriage Equality. Please join us declaring your support of Marriage Equality by visiting

My Sunshine Coast as a family owned and operated local Sunshine Coast business consider it an ethical stance to support Marriage Equality. Equality is a human right. Respecting the right of all citizens to live as equals is something we wish for our own family and for future generations of Australians.

Best wishes,
The MSC Crew
