Hugh Jackman joins the call for marriage equality in Australia

Hugh Jackman has joined an ever-growing list of prominent supporters of marriage equality that also includes two former NSW Premiers – Nick Greiner and Kristina Keneally – as well as Derryn Hinch and Wallaby’s Captain David Pocock.

Hugh has signed a statement declaring:

“Marriage should be about love and respect, not discrimination. Australia is at its best when we value equality over prejudice and fear. That’s why we support marriage equality for same-sex couples. Marriage equality will help remove discrimination against same-sex couples and their children. It will also benefit marriage by allowing it to embrace more loving committed couples who uphold its values. It’s time for Australia to join the other nations that have benefitted from this important reform.”

More Australian celebrities who support full marriage equality will be announced at Wednesday’s Equality Dinner in Sydney.
