Sydney Says Yes

We didn’t want this vote, LGBTI Australians deserve better, but we have to win it.

If this postal survey is to go ahead we must do everything we can to make sure we are ready for the fight.

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

    Being a gay dad: (two magnificent well adjusted sons and five intelligent red blooded grandchildren!) my sexuality has done nothing to spoil their heterosexuality and, I am greatly loved. There is a lot of badness as well as great goodness in some heterosexual families: physical/mental and psychological abuse. Sexuality has very little to to do with morality. It’s human understanding and enquiry that brings about understanding of the rich diversity of sexuality amongst us humans and the animal world.

    I support Marriage Equality because it is a question of human rights and all Australians feeling that they are valued members of out society.

    people should be free to marry whoever they believe is worthy of such a commitment.

    I am supporting marriage equality because it’s a fundamental human right. I would like to marry my girlfriend in our very own lucky country and at the moment this is not possible. I do worry about what the lack of government integrity says about our country at home and internationally.

    All people should have the right to marry their partner no matter which gender combination. They also should have the right to raise children within that union of love and stability. This prolonging of their equality right is painfully unnecessary. This should end now with the government making it law without a plebiscite.

    The divisiveness and distress a plebiscite will cause is disgusting and unnecessary!

    Marriage is about love and commitment and should no longer be held to gendered boundaries in our global era. Equal rights for all, not some.

    I support equality because it is a human right, it will save lives and it is an act of love that will help create and encourage a more inclusive human race.

    I support equality because I didn’t choose my sexuality any more than people choose their race. Religious affiliation is a choice, political party affiliation is a choice. Stop playing politics and religion with my life please.

    I support equality as it is one of the 5 most basic human right. It is that simple. The point here is actually about freedom of voting though. We do not need a plebiscite and each parliament member should be allowed to vote according to their own conscience, even if it is contra to the official party position, which is also as it should be. It is that simple. We need peace from this rubbish politics, we have to come together and not find excuses to exclude. Also simple.

    Because it is nobody’s business whom you wish to marry. Marriage means uniting, not what the bible supposedly says. Don’t know why we even have to have politics involved at all.
