The fight goes on

So much has been happening in the fight for marriage equality that it’s a good idea to stop and take stock of where we’re at. So, here’s the latest in a series of videos by Matt Baume.

In this video, Matt mentions the devastatingly overwhelming support for marriage equality among young Australians (Julia Gillard—pay attention!!). The bill to enact marriage equality in Australia has been introduced into the federal parliament, where it is expected to fail due to opposition from current “Labor” Prime Minister Julia Gillard. While I suspect few people think she’ll still be Prime Minister when Australia next goes to the polls—so deep is her unpopularity—there’s no guarantee the next Labor Leader will back marriage equality.

Meanwhile, zero progress has been made in New Zealand.
