Marriage equality

22 Mar 2016
Description

Right around the world, marriage equality is becoming a reality for many LGBTI couples. 

We have an exciting opportunity here – let’s work together and get marriage equality in place.

With the support of the majority of Australians, the time is right for marriage equality. The community understands that it's an issue of basic fairness.

Marriage equality is an important step towards reducing discrimination faced by lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex Australians in same sex relationships, and their families.

The Greens have listened to the community right from the start and we've acted. We are the only party that has voted for equality - every Bill, every time.

The Greens have put a Private Members Bill before parliament that would remove discrimination from the Marriage Act and give same-sex couples the right to marry and allow for overseas same-sex marriages to be recognised in Australia.
