Moments ago the top officer in Australia’s federal statistics bureau revealed that the result of the non-binding postal survey on same-sex marriage is a landslide WIN for the YES side by 24 points.
Members of Parliament are expected to quickly introduce a marriage bill that could see legalization in place as soon as Christmas.
But…as always…the haters will try every dirty trick in the book to slow things down or dilute the win with so-called “religious liberty” discriminatory amendments.
TODAY, however, we CELEBRATE a great win for Australia and yet another advance in the global battle for LGBT equality.
🎉 THANK YOU 🎉
This all happened because of you.
