I just wrote to my Federal MP Lucy Wicks MP, Federal Member for Robertson about ending Marriage Discrimination. Fingers crossed I get a more sensible response than that time my argument was countered with suggestions that the Federal Government were doing great things for people with disabilities *eyeroll*.

Bill Shorten has just announced he will table a Marriage Equality bill at the next sitting, seconded by Tanya @[166020776792056:274:Tanya Plibersek]! — with Lyn Mulder and 8 others.
Together for as long as I’ve been alive, these two men finally got married. I love that they didn’t expect marriage to change anything, but acknowledge that it enhanced their relationship. That’s awesome after 45+ years. Congratulations!
