I'm asking Bill Shorten to stop playing politics with same-sex marriage.

Polls show that the overwhelming majority of Australians want the opportunity to vote directly on changing the Marriage Act. It doesn’t matter if you are for or against same-sex marriage, Australians expect to be able to have their say.

  • Millions of Australians voted for the Turnbull Government expecting a plebiscite.
  • 55% of people who say they would vote for same-sex marriage want a plebiscite.  Even a majority of Labor voters want one!

So why is Bill Shorten and the Labor Party playing games with this issue and refusing to back the people’s vote?

It is time the politicians in Canberra stopped playing games and let the Australian people decide!

Sign the petition now and demand your right to have a say on this important issue.

To the Leader of the Opposition:

For too long now our politicians in Canberra have been fighting over the future of marriage. This year the Turnbull Government promised us a vote to break the deadlock. They took that policy to the election and won.

It is now time for you to accept their mandate and stop playing politics with marriage.

The plebiscite enjoys the support of the majority of Australians, even a majority of Labor voters want a plebiscite.

We, the undersigned, are both supporters and opponents of changing the Marriage Act.

We just want you to stop playing politics and let us have our say.
