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.

    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

    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.

    Because it is 2017 and marriage equality hurts no-one and makes a huge difference for those who want to marry

    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.

    Love, companionship and parenting between adult couples should not be ruled by outdated notions that these can only be performed by heterosexual couples.
  • commented 2017-05-13 09:20:38 +1000
    Because it is a no brainer. The fact that same sex couples cannot marry in Australia in 2017 is discriminatory. I am able to marry who I want as a heterosexual female. Why cannot same sex couples do the same? It is just ridiculous that they cannot.

    All this antidiscrimination and equality related legislation and policies and procedures in the workplace to promote equality and anti-discriminatory practices particularly against the LGBTI community. It is hipocrisy that marriage equality does not exist in Australia. It is time for bipartisan support by politicians and to provide leadership by showing the Australian community what good behavior is towards LGBTI people – behaving with respect, dignity and equality. Have some intestinal fortitude and just do it – be leaders and change the legislation for god’s sake NOW.

    I have a niece & nephew who are both gay, & I would love to see them be allowed to marry just like everybody else.

    Because Love is Love and doesn’t see gender but the person.

    I have two nephews. James is happily married to Natalie. Max is gay and not able to marry legally in this country. It’s disgraceful and embarrassing and unfair. Love is love. It’s time.
