Aussie pop queen Kylie Minogue’s wedding is hotly anticipated… but it might still be a long way off.
Her fiance, British actor Joshua Sasse, has told Channel Seven that they would love to tie the knot in Australia, but won’t do so until marriage equality is achieved.
“There are chances of a Melbourne wedding … (but) we will not get married until this law has passed in Australia,” Sasse said.
The pair are leading a new campaign for marriage equality in Australia called “Say I Do Down Under” launched in collaboration with Australians 4 Equality.
“When I found out that gay marriage was illegal in Australia, I was astounded,” Sasse said.
“I simply can’t fathom on any level whether it’s moral or religious or anything, that I have the right to get married and to marry the person that I love and that somebody else doesn’t because of their sexual orientation.”
Kylie is an LGBT activist and has previously said Australia is “backward” on the same-sex marriage issue and that “the earth didn’t cave in” in other countries where it has been made legal and that “love is love”.
High profile Australian actress Margot Robbie has also thrown her support behind the campaign, wearing one of their t-shirts when on Saturday Night Live in the US last weekend.’
The campaign hopes to achieve marriage equality without the $200 million plebiscite being proposed by Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.
