Australian political leaders, including Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, have come out in support of the campaign for same-sex marriage. The attack on family values and Christian tradition is part of the campaign for a ‘Yes’ vote in the upcoming vote on the subject.
More than 20,000 people gathered in Sydney to campaign ahead of a non-binding postal vote on changing Australia’s marriage act.
Mr Turnbull made a surprise appearance and speech at the launch of the New South Wales Yes campaign.
Opposition leader Bill Shorten then addressed the crowd at the main rally.
The non-binding vote to gauge support for changing Australia’s Marriage Act will be sent out from 12 September, with the result expected in November.
