Birmingham urges ‘yes’ vote on same-sex marriage

Federal education minister Simon Birmingham says he will be doing “everything I possibly can” to encourage Australians to vote in support of marriage equality in a national post ballot to be held in September.

Birmingham told a Liberal Party conference in South Australia that he favours legalising same-sex marriage, and he will be asking voters “to support love over fear, respect over intolerance”.

“I will be doing all I possibly can, without distracting from my ministerial duties, to get a ‘yes’ vote out there,” he said.
