[CHAT] Marriage Equality, Plebicites, and all things LGBTQ+

A few weeks ago, the Australian government decided to conduct a voluntary, non-binding postal plebiscite on the topic of gay marriage (to commence September 12th). And with the rising level of political debates, the LGBTQ+ community has really shown their most fierce, fabulous and fantastic side to the rest of Australia.

However, the marriage equality debate has two very loud, conflicting sides. This means that the rising level of debates regarding marriage equality can have strong implications for the emotional wellbeing of the LGBTQ+ community, their families and their allies. 

 

So what can we do to make the most out of this push toward marriage equality? And what can we do to care for those who may be affected by some of the statements that seem to be all over our media? Come join us on Monday, 28th August, at 7:30pm to have a chat about all these things and more. We hope to see you there!

I'm sorry to hear that @redhead, but maybe we should make a new topic for others who can't be here tonight but want some more support around the plebiscite and the stress it's causing for many people. Want to help write that thread and link back to it here? Smiley Happy
