I don’t know any gay people, so why should I support marriage equality?

You may not think you know gay people but chances are you know someone who does. You probably do too.

A:

Many parents realise that they may have lesbian or gay children or grandchildren in the future, and want all their children to grow up in a country where they can have the same aspirations in life. They do not want second best for their child.

LGBTI people are our sons and daughters, uncles and aunts, colleagues, neighbours and friends. Until now they’ve been allowed to be mothers and fathers, but not husband and wives. It’s time to end this discrimination and move forward as a nation, in accordance with Australia’s deep respect for fairness and equality.
