Politics in the pub debate

Last night I spoke at New Farm Neighbourhood Centre’s Politics in the Pub debate at the Brisbane Powerhouse. The topic of debate was about whether or not Australia should have same sex marriage. The other speakers were Shelley Argent from PFLAG, Sharon Danes from Australians for Marriage Equality and Michael Ord from the Australian Family Association. It was a lively debate with lots of questions. I spoke in favour of equality, and the removal of discrimination.

Thank you to everyone who came and took part.
