Community legal centres welcome marriage equality survey results
15 November 2017
The National Association of Community Legal Centres (NACLC) today welcomed the results of the marriage equality postal survey.
People across Australia have voted overwhelmingly in support of marriage equality, with 61.6% of people voting Yes.
NACLC acknowledges and applauds community legal centres, our staff and others who have worked tirelessly to ensure a Yes vote and who continue to work to achieve equality under the law for members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ) community.
NACLC and community legal centres across Australia call on the Government and the Parliament to act now to legislate and make marriage equality a reality. Importantly, with the introduction of marriage equality NACLC cautions against replacing one form of discrimination with another and emphasises the importance of marriage equality legislation not eroding existing anti-discrimination protections.
The time is now for full equality under the law for members of the LGBTIQ community across Australia.
