Sydney Says Yes

We are at a critical moment in the campaign for marriage equality.

Prime Minister Turnbull has re-introduced the divisive plebiscite for marriage equality.

Its time for him to stop playing politics with love.

If Mr Turnbull stood up to the extreme right wing of his party, we could make marriage equality law today.

Sign our petition to call on Malcolm Turnbull to grant his MPs a free vote in parliament.

I need your help to show that the momentum for equality in Australia is unstoppable.

    Love should never be discriminated in any ways

    As a member of the LGBTQI community, I believe our status in society should no longer be subject to discrimination by a government that has lost touch with it’s constituents and is using our community’s right for equality to play party politics.

    I support the right of every human being to be able to marry the person they choose to love. This is a basic human right. It affects our entire community – friends, family, loved ones, work colleagues, children at our schools, my son – and should be a basic ‘given’, not a debate in 2017. Sydney Says Yes.

    As someone who’s been in a committed, same sex relationship for 7 years – and contemplating how we start our own family – I want to raise my kids within the same recognised and respected construct of marriage, that my straight friends and family can access. My relationship is as valid and stable as a straight couple’s – let our legislation reflect it!

    Love = Love. Australia is an amazing country that allows so many opportunities to its people. It is baffling that this is not one yet. Get it done!

    I feel everyone should have the right to marry the person they choose wether they are heterosexual our homosexual

    There’s no good reason to discriminate against people in this way. A plebiscite dodges the responsibility that politicians have to the people, and opens the way for fear-mongering marketing campaigns.

    Because in our society everyone should have the right to create the reaplationship form they choose with their partner. Everything else is backwards and open discrimination

    I am not in the market for marriage-I’m 81 and single. But I still feel that I am not being treated as an equal according to the Constitution. All citizens should be treated as equals under the same laws of our country.

    Dear Malcolm Turnbull, please give your MPs the right to a free vote on the issue of Marriage Equality. This is something all Australians should have access to by right. With your help we could make marraige equality law today.

    With thanks

    Yours sincerely

    All Australians should have the right to marry the person they love.I believe in marriage equality

    This issue has been discussed ad nauseum in Australia since the 90s, if not earlier, and it’s time to get it right and have it done now!

    We should all have the right to marry the person we love. Consenting adults who have decided to devote their life and love to another do not need approval from third parties. Lets get Parliament doing its job and voting for Marriage Equality, Its time.

    It should honestly need no words to explain why equality is so important to everyone. Its a human right. The pursuit of happiness and all that. To think that its 2017 and we still dont have equal rigjts for everyone is appalling to me.!

    It’s about human rights. Being able to marry another person that you love is a human right. Human rights belong to all people.

    As a gay man I personally am not concerned about if I can or cannot marry my partner. However it concerns me greatly that I am prevented from doing so by some archaic law and that there are many people who are being prevented from doing what they consider is right.

    To Malcolm Turnbull I say it is time to bring the coalition into line with the rest of the country.

    Lets stop all the time wasting and costs discussing and holding plebicides when the majority of the people have already decided. Give the parliament a free vote and lets get this law passed and put the wasted plebicide costs to some useful purpose.

    Malcolm the support you received when you took the leadership was to get this done – not be governed by out of date MP’s threatening your position.
