Today is the last day for Senate submissions

Today is the last day to make submissions to the Senate about whether or not you want same sex marriage. If you are in favour of same sex marriage, make sure your voice is heard. Now is the time to speak up. The bills propose to remove discrimination in the Marriage Act, so as to allow gays and lesbians to marry. If enacted, Australia will be following the lead of other countries or states, such as South Africa, Canada, Spain and Portugal. (For the full guide, check out the ILGA website, and scroll down on the map, by clicking on the arrow at the top right of the map).

I will be sending my own submission, which will be also posted on this blog.

The easiest way of letting the Senate committee hear your voice is through Australians for Marriage Equality, where there is a dedicated web form allowing an email to be sent direct to the Committee.

The House of Representatives is also holding an inquiry. The closing date for those submissions is 20 April.
