Debate is heating up in Australia about the Marriage Law Postal Survey, but Heidi decided to try a different tactic this morning on Heidi, Will and Woody.
“I don’t want to sit here and angrily debate gay marriage, which I think some people have been doing online,” Heidi said. “And you would have seen The Footy Show last night, things got pretty heated.
“I guess for me, I want to sit here and I want to show you and I want to introduce you to people you might never have come across. I know there’s people in Perth that have never met a same sex couple, that have never met a gay or lesbian person.
“I don’t want to sit here and tell you that you have to vote yes or no. But I want to speak to the people that are undecided, and the people that might be voting no, and just show you how much this debate is affecting, and the choice that you are going to make, is affecting these people’s lives.”
Heidi asked a number of LGBT people to tell their stories, and the result is incredibly powerful. Please listen below. This is so important.
