Every Vote, Every MP, Every Time

Marriage equality has passed the Senate, and now Adam Bandt and his colleagues in the House will oversee the final step before we make this dream a reality.

Australia voted YES!

Across the country 61.6% of voters support marriage equality. Together, our community achieved this incredible result. No matter where you live, you now know that your country has voted for equality.

Now it is Parliament’s turn.

A free vote will be held in Parliament and we Greens are ready to turn this postal vote result into law.

Thank you for everything you have done to make a YES result possible.

As all eyes turn to Canberra, the Greens will be there every step of the way to make sure we have marriage equality in this country before the end of the year.

YES TO EQUALITY? I’M IN!

WHAT HAPPENS NEXT?

We are so close, but it is not over yet.

Now is the time for parliament to do its job.

Here’s how it’s going to happen.

 

Marriage Equality

It is so incredibly exciting to be debating this Marriage Equality Bill, knowing how close we are to achieving equality. I can't help but think of Bob Brown and the many years he spent in this chamber championing LGBTIQ+ rights, as a lone voice.
