Margaret Court: Protesters rally against former tennis champion outside Liberal Party fundraiser

Same-sex marriage campaigners have rallied outside a Liberal Party fundraiser to protest against tennis legend Margaret Court.

Liberal Party fundraiser in central Melbourne to protest against tennis legend Margaret Court, who was invited to give a speech at the function.

She has come under fire for a series of comments recently surrounding homosexuality, including saying she would boycott Qantas for its support of same-sex marriage

Court, who is now a pastor at Victory Life Church in Perth, wrote an open letter to Qantas in The West Australian newspaper in May saying she believed in the traditional definition of marriage as stated in the Bible.

Court was invited to the fundraiser for a state Liberal Party candidate at Melbourne’s men-only Athenaeum Club, however as protesters rallied outside, it was not clear if she had arrived or not.

The rally was organised by Anthony Wallace of the Equal Love group.
