Currently Same-Sex Couples DO NOT have the freedom to Marry the person they love in Australia.
As a resident on the Electrol Roll for Lalor I believe this issue needs to be addressed with Ms Gillard to gain her support in the stop against the discrimination faced by Same-Sex Couples and denying them the option of Marriage.
I have a Same-Sex female partner and an 8 year old son who are my family. I would love the opportunity to legally Marry my partner in Australia.
By denying Same-Sex couples the choice to Marry we are sending out a message that it's ok to discriminate on the ground of Sexual Orientation and gender, and that Same-Sex Couples are not capable of the level of Love and Commitment associated with Marriage.
Marriage provides health and well-being benefits and security for partners and their children, where they are currently excluded.
I want to provide my son with the same rights, respect and recognition as other children have.
I ask residents who reside in the LALOR district to please support Marriage Equality by signing this petition and share with us WHY MARRIAGE EQUALITY IS IMPORTANT TO YOU.
Your support on this important matter is greatly appreciated and together we can express to Ms Gillard that her Support on Marriage Equality is a crutial part in Legalizing Same-Sex Marriage.
