Equal Marriage Rights regardless of gender or sexual orientation

Additional Information

We petition the government to pass legislation that establishes equal rights to marriage, regardless of gender or sexual orientation.

In a society where the law has already recognised the integrity and rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people to have relationships and love, protected from discrimination: we ask for legislation that enshrines equal marriage rights for all.

We believe the underlying law of the land should detach equal rights to marriage, from religious objections and practices, since the state is not a religion.

We call on the government to remove the clear discrimination and unfairness which presently exists.

New marriage legislation, based on justice, equality, and non-discrimination will in no way undermine marriage. The threat to heterosexual marriage comes from heterosexual relationships themselves.

We, the undersigned, petition the government to establish equal rights to get married, regardless of gender or sexual orientation.
