Equality Campaign led the national movement to achieve marriage equality, running the campaign for YES when Australia voted on marriage equality via a postal survey.
In a historic victory, Australians overwhelmingly said YES to fairness and equality. Our country definitively decided that every Australian should be able to marry the person they love, in the country they cherish.
We did this together! This happened because millions of Australians reached out to our own families, neighbourhoods, organisations – to stand up for equality, stand by our loved ones and share why this was so important to us.
We're stronger now than ever before. And we won't stop until all LGBTI Australians are treated equally.
Over many, many years we have built the broadest possible base of support to demonstrate that the majority of Australia believes in equality — old and young, country and city, parents and kids.
To keep going, to make sure our LGBTI friends, family, and workmates are treated equally in Australia, we need to continue to encourage people to join with us.
Our launch video tells the story of Equality Campaign: A diverse community of Australians working together for LGBTI equality. It features everyday Australians — families, couples, friends, young and old from all over Australia.
The Equality Campaign was created by Australian Marriage Equality and Australians for Equality, with support from organisations, community groups and businesses across the country — as well as thousands of Australians from every walk of life.
We are working to make sure every LGBTI person is equal under the law, able to live their truest lives with respect, dignity and equal opportunity.
Share the campaign with your networks and make sure you join the thousands of Australians who are coming together to achieve equality for all.
Connect with our community online and stay tuned for updates and ways to take action by signing up.
Share your story today! Our stories have the power to create understanding, empathy and change. Let us know an inspiring story or moment that moved you during the YES vote — or even let us know about your recent wedding now the law has been changed!
But most important of all, make sure you tell everyone why you believe all Australians should be treated equally. To achieve full equality, we are going to have to talk to more people in more ways than ever before.
Research shows real-life conversations are incredibly powerful. They’re what change hearts and minds. That’s why equality supporters are continue to ignite thousands of conversations all across Australia.

We are a campaign of respectful conversations.
