Australia — Kylie and Joshua Sasse, British actor and LGBTQ+ advocate, announced their engagement earlier this year, but they said that they will not marry until all Australians can.


Minogue, also an LGBTQ+ Advocate, has been part of the “Say I do Down Under” Campaign, and also very outspoken about equal rights for LGBT people in her country.

 

“When I found out that gay marriage was illegal in Australia, I was astounded,” said Sasse, who launched the “Say I Do Down Under”campaign at the weekend.

“I simply can’t fathom on any level, whether it’s moral or religious or anything, that I have the right to get married and to marry the person that I love and that somebody else doesn’t because of their sexual orientation.” He added.

“Have you ever been in love? Are you in love? Could you imagine yourself there one day?

Imagine too then, having your government deny you that right — what if you couldn’t marry that person. Your person. ” the campaign states.

However, the February 11th plebiscite has been denounced by critics as a waste of public funds as it would have no legal weight and the parliament would ultimately have the final decision. Critics also say it would spur a highly divisive debate.
