Sally Rugg is a Sydney-based activist advocating for a range of LGBTQIA+ issues. She speaks regularly at public events and is devoted to equality and fair treatment for all people, from the LGBTQI community, to refugees, to those living below the poverty line. Our initial sitting occurred just before Sally began traveling around Australia to campaign for marriage equality at several rallies. We had an additional sitting shortly after the announcement of the marriage equality postal survey, which we strongly opposed, and at the time we were both hopeful that marriage equality would become a reality in the near future. Sally’s portrait was completed shortly after marriage equality became law in Australia.
