In 2017, GPV/KCV supported those who were campaigning for marriage equality, encouraging people to vote ‘yes’ in the Australian Government’s postal plebiscite. GPV released a statement calling for the government to:
• recognise equality as a fundamental principle of human rights;
• make civil marriage available to all, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity; and
• stop wasting public funds on protracted debate and to resolve the matter quickly.
