Twin sisters Jess and Lisa Origliasso of The Veronicas have designed their own t-shirt as a way of celebrating Australia's Federal Government changing 85 different laws that now include same-sex couples in the "de facto partner" definition.
The musical siblings said the reforms "aren’t just a victory for the gay community, they’re a victory for all Aussies who think we should be free to spend our lives with the person we love, regardless of gender, race, religion, or anything else. We can’t enjoy that freedom unless we have the rights to support it."
Jess and Lisa said they like their shirt, above, because it's "really cute, and Love Always is a great message for everyone."
So true. Equality for all!
Jessica and Lisa Origliasso of The Veronicas are going after Designworks Clothing Company for unpaid merchandise sales.
The singing twins claim in their lawsuit that the clothing company hasn't paid them for sales going as far back as December of 2009.
The Veronicas signed a deal with Designworks in 2007, which gave them an exclusive license to hawk their merch. In return, Designworks would pay Jessica and Lisa 12 per cent of royalties on all wholesale deals within 30 days, which they haven't done.
Now that their contract with the company ended in April, the Origliasso sisters are seeking payment for sales damages, interest and legal costs.
Time to pay up!
