LGBTI Rally Draws Historic Numbers for Australia

Is the Australian Gay Marriage YES Campaign Hurting Free Speech?

Rallies in support of same-sex marriage were being held in various cities on Sunday afternoon.

The biggest demonstration for LGBTIQ rights in Australian history was attended by more than 20,000 people.

Survey forms asking Australians whether they support same sex marriage will be posted from Tuesday.

Police have not confirmed the number.

In one of the country's largest LGBTI rallies, around 40,000 demonstrators participated in the rights movement, according to reports from Equal Marriage Rights Australia.

The nationwide mail-out begins on Tuesday, and all surveys should be sent off by September 25, which is when telephone and online response options open for people who can not complete the paper survey.

Any survey which arrives at the address after 6pm on November 7 will not be counted, and the result will be announced on November 17.

Opposition Leader Bill Shorten told the Sydney rally it was time for same-sex marriage and apologised that politicians had failed to make it happen. Alex Greenwich, co-chair of Australian Marriage Equality, says: 'This is going to take all of us to win it.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said that he would be voting in favour of marriage.

"Many people will vote "yes", as I will, because they believe the right to marry is a conservative ideal as much as any other principle", he added. Has traditional marriage as we know it been undermined?
