The absence of marriage equality in Australia in 2017 is a damaging, offensive and overdue blight on the ‘lucky country’. As a jeweller the majority of my income is made from wedding jewellery, and as a gay person my rights are not equal to heterosexual couples. By using the word No I wanted to subvert the positivity of traditional marriage and explore what a ‘gay’ wedding could look like.
