postal survey for marriage equality

Sep 19 2017

It’s a dark time for your pals in the LGBTQI community in Australia. You may even think you don’t have any pals in that community at all. But, statistically, unless you only know 9 people on earth, you definitely know some non-heterosexuals. Your family, colleagues, associates, people who serve you in shops, religious people, secular people, city people and good country folk, the old and the young. It is a big old spectrum of a world out there, and it is populated with humans who all feel love and fear and want happiness in their lives. I would like to live my life with the same rights afforded to straight people; and if you would like to read an article I wrote on same-sex marriage in 2013, here it is.
