Foxtel to remove NO campaign ads

This petition had 108 supporters

While watching Foxtel this afternoon I was subjected to my first 'No' campaign ad surrounding the current marriage equality plebiscite in Australia. After watching it I felt sick - sick because it attacks hundreds of thousands of LGBTQIA+ people across Australia, sick because it attacks gender identity and gender experimentation which has nothing to do with marriage equality, and sick because Foxtel is happy to take the 'No' campaign's money and spread its hate speech. Foxtel broadcasts LGBT and LGBT-friendly shows such as Broad City, The Walking Dead, Game of Thrones, Wentworth, Orange is the New Black, Supergirl, Sex and the City, Californication, Doctor Who, Queer Eye and Rizzoli & Isles - why does it think it's acceptable to show these ads alongside these shows? Why not take a stand and tell the 'No' campaign to take its money elsewhere? Why should I, as a queer person, continue to give Foxtel my money when it attacks my very existence?
