"Priscilla" star Guy Pearce supports marriage equality in Australia

SYDNEY, Australia -- Same-sex marriage supporters have raised thousands of dollars for the marriage equality campaign.

Supporters gathered at Sydney’s Quay restaurant at the Overseas Passenger Terminal in The Rocks tonight for a sold-out $300 a head dinner to raise money for Australian Marriage Equality’s campaigns in 2012.

The support of one of the stars of "Priscilla, Queen of the Desert," Guy Pearce, was also announced on the same day – only the latest in a line of high profile Australians to endorse the campaign.
