MAGDA’S MES­SAGE FOR THE UN­DE­CIDED

Herald Sun - - NEWS - BRI­ANNA TRAVERS

MAR­RIAGE equality ad­vo­cate Magda Szubanksi has urged peo­ple who share her be­lief in the in­sti­tu­tion of mar­riage to vote “Yes”.

Kath & Kim star Szuban­ski and three-time Hawthorn premier­ship player Rus­sell Greene made pas­sion­ate pleas for Aus­tralians to vote in the same-sex mar­riage postal plebiscite.

“I en­cour­age you, if you are go­ing to vote yes, to do it as quickly as pos­si­ble so it doesn’t get buried un­der­neath all the bills,” Szuban­ski said. “If you are un­de­cided, I hope with all my heart that you will vote yes be­cause I be­lieve in the in­sti­tu­tion of mar­riage.

“I was raised in a fam­ily where my par­ents were mar­ried for 58 years and I would hope if I met the woman of my dreams, that I could have that same in­sti­tu­tion to sup­port me.”

Greene said the fact his gay son could not get mar­ried was “19th-cen­tury stuff”.

Bal­lot forms were sent out last week and should be re­turned by 6pm on Novem­ber 7.
