Today 21 other countries today have marriage equality: including the UK, New Zealand, Ireland and the US. Celebrating Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) couples’ love and commitment, strengthening their families and affirming their equality under the law has brought joy, dignity, security and belonging to millions of people.   

Australians too are now more accepting. We believe we have eliminated discrimination from our hearts. It’s time to eliminate it from our laws.

Many of the arguments against marriage equality today are meant to scare. But this is only about allowing two people to marry. It’s really a very simple and straightforward change.

Marriage equality does not take anything away from anyone. It does not affect anyone else’s marriage. It will not change anything for the majority of Australians, but will mean a great deal to the dignity and happiness of some.  

Treating people unfairly and unequally is a thing of the past. We are a decent and fair nation, and our attitudes have evolved over time on a range of issues – including race, sexuality and gender. It’s time to make marriage, with all of its rights and responsibilities, available to every Australian.
