Don't delay: Pass marriage equality when Parliament next sits!

We call on our politicians to hold a free vote for marriage equality when parliament next sits.

Why is this important?

We can win marriage equality. Two thirds of Aussies, the majority of parliamentarians and the leaders of all major parties support it -- the only blocker is political will.

This week Bill Shorten said: "Let's get on with this, have a vote next week when the Parliament sits.”

He’s not alone. Greens leader Richard Di Natale has said: "The easiest, simplest, quickest, most effective, least costly and least harmful way of ensuring equality in marriage is through a vote in the parliament, and we can do that next week should the Prime Minister decide to show some leadership."

And Senate power broker Nick Xenophon has said: "I would like to see this happen in this Parliament."

Now it’s up to us. Let’s call on our leaders to hold a free vote for marriage equality when parliament sits again.

Join this urgent call for our pollies to do their jobs and stop the delay! Sign the petition and share this with your friends:

Reasons for signing

  • Everyone deserves the right to choose who they love whether you're gay or straight. Love is love. There's no difference between the two.
  • Marriage equality should be a no-brainer in 2016.
  • Because I want to live in a country where marriage is marriage no matter if it's between a man and a woman, a man and a man, a woman and a woman and so on........
