The Guardian reports:
Two weeks after she put herself at odds with her father, the country’s former prime minister, with a post on Instagram, Frances Abbott has appeared in an advert calling on Australians to back marriage equality in the country’s non-binding, voluntary survey. “You can’t help who you fall in love with. Love just happens sometimes and it’s unexpected and that’s kind of what’s the awesome thing about it,” Frances Abbott said in the video released by the Equality Campaign.
She referred to her aunt – and Tony Abbott’s sister – Christine Forster, who lives with her partner, Virginia Edwards. “I don’t think she planned to fall in love with Virginia – it just happened. It never really changed anything, she was still aunty Chris – she’s still going to be at Christmas, she’s still going to be at the family barbecues, her children are still my cousins,” Frances Abbott said.
