Woooo Australia! We did it! We voted YES and on Thursday the 7th of December, Australia became the 26th country to legalise marriage equality.
Ice cream favourite Ben & Jerry’s have been in long-standing support of the movement, having kicked off the ‘Say I Dough’ campaign in 2013. Four years later, Ben & Jerry’s are celebrating a historic occasion by giving out FREE ICE-CREAM to all!
Between 5:30PM and 9:30PM tonight (11th of December), you will be able to pick up your free ice cream cone from the Ben & Jerry’s store at HOYTS Norwood.
Bert Naber, Ben & Jerry’s Australia, said: “What a momentous achievement! Ben & Jerry’s has a long history of fighting for social justice issues including LGBTIQ rights and marriage equality. It is grounded in our company’s core values and an unshakable belief that everyone deserves full and equal civil rights.”
“We are thrilled that Australia has legalised marriage equality. Now, we want to celebrate and we can’t think of a better way than with free ice cream!”
