1. It’s Time
A great spot by GetUp, an independent movement to build a progressive Australia and bring participation back into the democracy. Even though the discrimination has been removed from our hearts, the next step is to remove it from the laws. Still not sure what I’m talking about? It’s time to end marriage discrimination in Australia, as the current laws deny same-sex couples to be wed.
