It's Australia's election day on Saturday - so who was against same sex marriage?

  • Published in Latest

Well, it's that time again for Aussies to head to the polls and decide which party/parties will run the country for the next few years. One major change that happened for our community in the last session of parliament, was the legalisation of Same Sex Marriage.
