Australia held the largest demonstration for LGBT rights in the country’s history on Sunday. More than 20,000 people poured into the streets of Sydney to demand equal rights regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity. This is Australian activist Joy Kyriacou.

Joy Kyriacou: “I think it’s amazing. They said before, this is the largest LGBTIQrights rally ever in Australian history, and that’s pretty incredible. So very proud to be here, and I’m here with all of my family and with my wife. So we’re really happy to be here, too.”
