The High Court of Australia has ruled that the Federal Government’s postal survey on marriage equality will go ahead. It’s not the result we were hoping for; we support marriage equality, because we hold it to be a human right (here’s why), and human rights should never be put up for popular vote.
Everyone deserves to be treated equally under the law and to be free from discrimination on the basis of gender and sexual orientation. Unfortunately for the LGBTQI community in Australia, that isn’t the case right now.
But now that the postal survey is happening – it’s time to say YES. Let’s make sure that Australia says YES to marriage equality, that all Australians who believe in equality, fairness, commitment and love stand with the LGBTQI community and say YES.
