This may be a priority for some, but I’m not confident the time is now for a vote in Parliament.

This may be a priority for some, but I’m not confident the time is now for a vote in Parliament.

Research shows that now two-thirds of Australians support marriage equality. And while most people think a change is inevitable, real people are being impacted the longer we delay. For the kids growing up feeling different and excluded, for the couples who are being denied the right to marry the person they love, for the parents and grandparents of gay children or grandchildren… isn’t it time? We all want children growing up today to be able to have the same hopes and dreams, and not be treated as second best. Unfair and unequal treatment under the law is hurting real people. And it’s something we have the power to fix.

A:

How much longer do you think Australians should have to wait for equality? With so many other countries already saying yes to marriage equality, is there a reason Australians should have to wait longer?
