Vandalised Brisbane home of YES supporters has repairs fully covered

A Brisbane home that was vandalised last week for it’s visible support of marriage equality has been gifted the funds for repairs thanks to a crowdfunding campaign.

Brisbane housemates Olivia Hill and Larissa Baldwin took to social media over the weekend to show images of rocks that had been hurled through their window in response to the ‘Vote YES’ and rainbow paraphernalia featured outside their home.


Buzzfeed have reported that Hill was also verbally abused by the man who threw the stones.

“I was so scared. I don’t think I’ve ever been so scared in my entire life,” Hill said.

“I thought… this is how I’m going to die in this house, with this homophobe.”

DIY Rainbow founder and Sydney based LGBTI activist James Brechney launched a GoFundMe page to go towards the repairs on the home – raising the required $350 in just 25 minutes.

The now closed campaign raised a total of $660, a total of $110 more than the $500 goal which included repairs, GoFundMe fees and $100 for Hill and Baldwin.

The GoFundMe page says the pair intend to donate the extra money to The Equality Campaign.
