Today, events have been held in Sydney and Melbourne as the "I Do" campaign headed by Australian Marriage Equality, GetUp!, marie claire magazine and Sunrise aims to collect signatures for a petition to legalise same-sex marriage.
The high profile campaign has generated support from some of Australian celebrities including Rachael Taylor, Jennifer Hawkins, Megan Gale and Magda Szubanski.
In the coming weeks a Senate and a House of Representatives inquiry into
marriage equality will be released. And, in a few months, members of
parliament will vote to determine whether or not same-sex couples will
be afforded the same legal right to marry.
Do you support same-sex marriage?
