The time has come for marriage equality, yet we’re still waiting.

Despite a majority of Australians being in favour of marriage equality, we’re still waiting for all couples to be allowed full and equal legal status.

“We’re Waiting” is a powerful and unifying message for one of the most important legal and social reforms of our time.

We believe all Australians should be able to marry, irrespective of gender, race, sexuality or religion. Marriage equality is about ensuring all couples have access to the one legal institution known as “marriage”. And it’s about an Australia in which everyone is treated fairly.

While we wait, we will do everything we can to keep our message of equality before the broadest possible audience and win the 25 additional MPs’ votes required to make marriage equality a reality.

To stop waiting, start here. Your action today could make history.
