Referendum on gay marriage?

Independent MP Tony Windsor has proposed a referendum on same-sex marriage

Sex and money

The visit by Ellen DeGeneres and her wife, Portia de Rossi, highlights the need to just get on with legislation for gay marriage.

Out and proud

Retired High Court Judge Michael Kirby has urged gay Australians who have media profiles to come out of the closet and stand up for what they are. Kirby, who is gay himself and has been in a relationship with the same person for 43 years, said it was difficult to blame heterosexuals for their “discriminatory attitudes” when high profile people were not honest about their sexuality.

The right to choose

So Magda Szubanski has spoken in favour of same sex marriage, do we care? Personally I believe everyone has the right to proclaim their support for whatever takes their fancy, the fact that they happen to be a celebrity holds no weight for me. Celebrities seem too eagre to speak up for this cause or that cause and honestly, it becomes a little predictable.

Magda loves women

Magda Szubanski loves women, she’s a lesbian, always has been. As with many other gay men and women, she is incredibly disappointed that the legalisation of same sex marriage is still a topic which is being discussed, rather than being accepted.
