MAGDA’S MESSAGE FOR THE UNDECIDED
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.
