Marriage is an important way many people choose to show their commitment. But in Australia, LGBTQI couples still don’t have this right, despite two-thirds of Australians believing marriage should be equal.
A Senate Committee just finished an inquiry into how the Marriage Act could be amended to usher in marriage equality. The Committee ironed out a number of key issues – such as how to make sure the bill protects the right to equality and religious freedoms.
We’re now one step closer to making this vital change a reality. The next step is to push for a cross-party marriage equality bill to be voted on by the parliament. Together we can achieve this, but we need you to demand a parliamentary vote for progress, love and fairness.
This is about people in our community that we care about. It could be a friend, a workmate, neighbour or family member. We should all be treated fairly under the law. Love is love, it’s as simple as that.
