Australian Marriage Equality (AME) has today spoken to MPs across all political parties and urged them to work together to achieve marriage equality for every Australian without further delay.

“Today we have spoken to MPs from the Government, Labor, The Greens and the Nick Xenophon team about the importance of working together to deliver marriage equality for all LGBT people in Australia,” Chair of Australian Marriage Equality Alex Greenwich said.

“This week, we will continue to meet with MPs across all political parties to build a cross-party consensus that achieves equality for LGBT Australians in this parliament.

“LGBT Australians have waited far too long to be able to marry the person they love in this country. Politicians need to remember the real people who are impacted by a lack of action on marriage equality.

“Poll after poll shows there is majority support across the nation for marriage equality and this is represented in the parliament with more supporters than ever before. Marriage Equality takes from no one and makes our society a better, fairer and more inclusive place.

“This is a straightforward change that allows all Australians to be treated equally and ensures our laws reflect our proud values of fairness and equality for all.

“Regardless of the pathway forward, AME will continue to work with its coalition of supporters to deliver this straightforward reform,” Mr Greenwich concluded.
