Early notice: on 28 November, two days after the Senate hands down its same-sex marriage report, there will be a second set of rallies around the country to tell the nation’s politicians that Australians do not approve of discriminatory laws enacted in our name. That the oppressive bigots do not represent the majority.
Full marriage equality is well overdue.
What will you say when your kids ask, “What ? They used to ban gay people from getting married? You stood up against that, right?”
We were there on 1st August, and we’ll be there again on 28 November. This is the civil rights issue of our day: if you weren’t able to stand up against prejudice and discrimination last time, please don’t miss this opportunity to make your voice heard.
IN THE MEANTIME: Please sign the National Same-Sex Marriage Petition. Its message is short and to-the-point –
I call on the Australian Parliament to legislate for same-sex marriage immediately. I reject all discrimination on the basis of a person’s sexual orientation.
Bloody oath I do.
