How You Can Help Secure Marriage Equality In Australia

Voters have until August 24 to register to vote in the public survey.

As Australia gears up for a public vote on marriage equality, homophobic literature has already been appearing throughout the country, including a poster in Melbourne that reads “stop the fags.”

The frightening campaign should be a rallying call for all Australian citizens to participate in the ballot.

Here’s what you can do right now:
