Check out the emotional PSA below from Get Up Australia, a not-for-profit organization that wants to “build a progressive Australia and bring participation back into [Australia’s] democracy”.
I’ve seen many Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus friends sharing this video over the past couple of days, describing it as “beautiful”, “stunning”, etc.
Personally I’m a little underwhelmed by the piece. I’m an openly gay man, but I also tend to be very pragmatic. Rational (as opposed to emotional) appeals work better for me.
Of course, it may also have something to do with that fact that I personally don’t want to EVER get married. I understand that many members of the LGBT community want that right though, and I think that they should have it if their heterosexual counterparts can. (It’s the logical thing to do.)
