During this momentous time in Australia’s history, we are immensely proud to introduce the All Love Is Equal Campaign. Based on the principles of love, empowerment and hope, we invite all Australians to celebrate and support Marriage Equality, featuring real Australian same sex couples in our campaign to eloquently amplify the message of equality.
As passionate supporters and vocal advocates of Marriage Equality, we first launched our collection of Marriage Equality Rings in 2014, receiving a huge outpouring of public support. In the run up to the conclusion of the Australian Marriage Equality Vote, we are reaffirming our dedication to this cause with our All Love Is Equal Campaign.
“I want the younger generation to know that their love is just as important as everyone else’s. Everyone deserves to be treated with the same amount of respect and dignity. This is the essence of what we want to represent with this campaign.” – Nadia Neuman.
We have captured candid and intimate snapshots from the lives of an array of LGBTQI couples who wish to grow old together in a society that values and respects them. We are showcasing and supporting the loving relationships between these couples, who deserve the right to legally marry their partners and live in a diverse society that affords equal rights to all of its citizens. We invited everyday Australians to take part in this campaign, to show how the outcome of this vote affects the lives of people from all walks of life.
This campaign is also a personal campaign for Nadia and the team here at Mondial, given that she is not able to legally marry her partner in the company of family and friends under the current law.
“The message of All Love Is Equal is vital , as everyone needs to feel that their love is just as important as everyone else’s. I hope the campaign will help Same Sex couples feel accepted and understood within our diverse Australian community. Everyone has the right to grow old with the person they love, without judgement and discrimination.” - Nadia Neuman
Along with this, we will donate 10% of sales from our collection of Wedding Bands to the highly respected charity headspace, an organisation that works tirelessly to support the mental health of young Australians. Through this carefully considered collaboration we wish to ensure Australian youth have the opportunity to discuss their own situation and mental health, in a safe, judgement-free environment, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender.
“Everyone should be treated equally. We want to see love co-exist and headspace is a natural alignment to help those struggling with the lack of constitutional equality many are afforded. I want young members of the LGBTQI community to feel supported and proud of who they are, able to access the help they may need. Headspace is a vital organisation that helps those struggling with depressionfeelings of anxiety and lack of self-worth due to amongst other things, the inequality inherent in the lack of government support for marriage equality.” – Nadia Neuman.
