Gay man casts a rainbow

DYLAN Carmichael is planning to paint Gladstone rainbow.

Next month the openly-gay Gladstone resident is hoping to organise a Marriage Equality Rally along Goondoon St and is calling on residents to show their support.

"I'm a strong believer in leaving a place (I've lived in) a better place than I found it and I haven't had a chance to do that in Gladstone yet," the 27-year-old said.

Before he makes the move to Brisbane at some stage soon, Dylan will encourage local gay and lesbian communities to show pride in their sexuality and join the fight for marriage equality in Queensland.

"I hope this march raises the profile of 'gay in Gladstone'."

Yesterday Dylan was still awaiting a green light from Gladstone Police to conduct the 3km march on November 17.

He has been in contact with Gladstone Regional Council to arrange permits for the march.

Starting at 1.30pm from Apex Park, Dylan and supporters will travel around the CBD before a reception at Scotties Restaurant and Bar on Goondoon St.
