As part of its mission to create a world where anyone can belong, Airbnb is asking Aussies to make their support of marriage equality known by wearing the symbol of marriage itself – a ring.
Launched with support from some of Australia’s biggest brands, Until We All Belong marks the most public corporate declaration for marriage equality in Australia to date.
The initiative calls on people to show their acceptance of marriage equality and commit to wearing a bespoke ring until same-sex marriage is recognised here.
Designed in support from world-renowned designer Marc Newson, this unique, matte black metal ring is a visual representation of the gap in marriage equality and engraved with the campaign tagline.
Airbnb CEO and Head of Community, Brian Chesky, said he hopes the movement will spark conversations by putting marriage equality back on top of the nation’s political agenda.
“Openness and belonging are at the heart of Airbnb – it’s at the core of what we do every day. We are committed to helping people belong no matter where they are in the world and strongly believe that everyone should have the right to marry the person they love,” said Chesky.
"This is an opportunity for people to show their support for marriage equality – not just those within the LGBTQI+ community, but for anyone to make their support for a brother, sister, parent, friend or loved one known.”
The Equality Campaign Executive Director, Tiernan Brady, said this campaign is about the most Australian of our values, which is a fair go for all.
“Two-thirds of the nation as well as a majority of politicians want every Australian to be able to marry the person they love in the country they love. Marriage equality will not change anything for the vast majority of Australians but will make a profound difference to the status and dignity of many.”
The ‘Until We Belong’ campaign is authorised by Airbnb, Sydney
