PIAC has welcomed the results of the marriage equality survey and called on the government to honour their commitment to pass legislation to allow same-sex couples to marry without delay.
‘This is a landmark victory for the many, many Australians who have campaigned for marriage equality,’ said PIAC CEO Jonathon Hunyor.
‘Australia has spoken, and the answer is a resounding yes, across every State and Territory’.
‘The prime minister now needs to provide the leadership necessary to ensure that legislation passes quickly and decisively for marriage equality. The LGBTI community – and the many millions who voted yes – deserve nothing less.
‘Any move to establish further grounds for discrimination against LGBTI Australians must be flatly rejected.
‘The people voted ‘yes’, not ‘yes – subject to further discrimination,’ added Jonathon Hunyor.
PIAC represented Andrew Wilkie, Felicity Marlowe and PFLAG in the high court challenge to the postal survey.
