Generally, I don't get too involved in politics. In fact before our current leaders came in, I'd have to say I didn't really pay attention at all. Which is bad I know. Worse is that the main reason I'm aware now is that I dislike oh so much of what they do. There are a plethora of reasons why I don't like Tony Abbott. One of these is his stance on marriage equality. I simply don't understand why I should be allowed to marry the person I love (if I ever find him!!), but people in my family, or my friends can not. Today in Perth around 5,000 people (and numerous pets) gathered, in the rain, to rally for the opportunity for a free vote on the issue of marriage equality. These rallies have been held all around Australia and we can only hope that eventually the message will get through. Love is love.
