This is the new Marriage Equality video, released today, from GetUp! The timing couldn’t be better as our Prime Minister has once again postponed a dinner with three gay couples who won the right to the dinner at an auction. The dinner was supposed to happen within a few weeks but with the participants agreement Ms Gillard pushed it back, as long as it was before the National Labor Party Conference, where marriage equality will be debated, which is next week. Unfortunately the dinner has now been postponed until the new year.

This is a beautiful video that I’ve watched many times this afternoon and cried every time. It’s so simple and represents exactly what I want. It’s not an in-your-face gay love scene or anything that the conservatives could possibly object to. It’s the same love story they claim to be protecting, just between two young men in love.
