Same-sex marriage or Civil Unions
Now I’ll be straight up, one day I would like the right to say to the person I love, “Will you marry me?” not “Will you civil union me?
Tonight a civil union bill will be voted on in Queensland Parliament. While civil unions is not complete marriage equality and some may say it’s a poor substitute, it is still a step in the right direction in having our relationships legally recognized.
The battle for equality is far from over and that is why it is still important for those that are available to rally at the ALP conference this Saturday.
Today though, I want to encourage any of you Queenslanders that have time to join me this evening at 5:30pm outside the Queensland Parliament as we rally in support for civil unions and be part of Queensland LGBT history in the making.
See you peeps tonight.
