Statement on Marriage Equality Survey

The Australian people have backed changing the marriage law to allow for same-sex couples to marry – this result must be respected and the law needs to change swiftly.

I’m proud that the vast majority of Western Victorians, like the rest of our nation, have spoken so strongly in favour of treating everyone, no matter their sexual orientation, with respect and equality.

I know this campaign has been tough for some people, but please take solace in this result and know the majority in our community and our nation back your right to love who you chose.
