David Pocock. Never heard of him? Neither had I until recently, then today I see he’s one of the fantastic breed of straight guys. He’s a big beefy straight rugby player on the Australian national team and he’s a vocal campaigner for gay equality.

David is only 23 years old but is 184 cm tall and 104kg (224lb) in weight and a chiseled jaw and a twinkle in his eye. He’s also a Christian, but has what I always believed to be real christian values. That is to treat everyone with equal respect. David recently married his sweetheart Emma, but it wasn’t, from what I can gather, a legally recognised marriage, as he and his bride refuse to marry legally until gay and lesbian people are allowed to marry too.

With people like David and other straight public figures, like English Prime Minister David Cameron, stating that our current (and opposition) political parties are behind the times and are making Australia look foolish on the world stage, surely it’s only a matter of time before we have marriage equality here?
