A win for equality!
Great news! The majority of Australians have voted YES for marriage equality. Now our politicians should get on with their jobs and enshrine marriage equality in law.
Our LGBTIQ members, relatives, friends and colleagues will now be able to have their love, commitment and families recognised as equal.
Congratulations to all of the Together members who got involved. Whether it was running an event in your workplace, talking to your colleagues, attending a rally or just voting yes, you helped to make our communities a little bit more equal.
We want to acknowledge that the postal survey hasn’t been easy for many LGBTIQ people and rainbow families.
Winning marriage equality is a big step forward but there is still work to do. Events during the postal survey proved that homophobia and transphobia still exist in our communities.
If you or someone you care about identifies as LGBTIQ, your union will continue to have your back to make sure that our workplaces and community are free of homophobia and transphobia.
Love won. Love will always win.
