I am SO excited about today. I'm attending my first ever Mardi Gras and I'm hosting the broadcast with one of my best friends (Joel Creasey. I'm busting on the inside over the fact I get to celebrate with a community I'm a fierce ally of. I'm honoured to be included in today's celebrations. I don't pretend to know of the struggles their community has gone through but I do know what it is to be an outsider. The LGBTQI community have always welcomed me. They've never told me I'm too much, too loud or too bright. They deserve marriage equality, they deserve equal treatment, today I will be shouting that from the rooftops. HAPPY MARDI GRAS BITCHES!
The Liberals have been waging war on renewables and now the price of electricity is double what it was with the Greens/Labor carbon price and a higher renewable energy target.

Many of you will remember the heartbreaking story of 24 year old "smart, intelligent, beautiful" Gold Coast mum #TaraBrown who was allegedly bashed to within an inch of her life while trapped in the car she had just crashed after her ex forced her off the road. Tara had just dropped her little girl off at day care. She was dead within the hour.
Today, Tara's incredibly brave but heartbroken family will arrive at Brisbane's Supreme Court for the trial of her partner who has been charged with her murder.
If you would like to show them your support, help remember Tara, and tell the world that domestic violence related deaths must stop, there is a peaceful #RedRoseRally being held outside the Brisbane Supreme court, 451 George St, today (Monday) at noon.
Please bring a red rose, or wear red... or both. It would mean the world to them. And please, PLEASE spread the word... @tarabrownfoundation #StopViolenceAgainstWomen#saynotodomesticviolence #dv #Brisbane
