The ‘Marriage Equality’ plebliscite

Around 2 months ago, I made a statement to the LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) Community on my DJ Facebook page. If you didn’t get the chance to read it, you still can HERE.

I wanted to write another article surrounding people’s thoughts and actions as at this time we’ve seen a lot of nasty things, from both sides, come from this nasty plebiscite. On the one hand, people receiving unsolicited texts telling them to ‘Vote Yes’ and on the other, people receiving unsolicited calls from people telling them which they should ‘Vote No’.

Firstly, before reading this article – I fully support marriage equality personally. As I mentioned in my original Facebook post, I’ve had the privilege to play at so many wonderful LGBT events and there is nothing different between playing in front of those in the LGBT community, or in front of those who aren’t. Whether it be a club packed full of guys, or girls – there is no difference – we are all the same!

After seeing so much negativity around the Marriage Equality campaigns at the moment – I’d like to share something that I feel is really important for everyone involved.

RESPECT THE PROCESS

We may not like it, and we may even hate it – but what I’ve been saying to everyone during this time is please just respect the process. At the end of the day, it’s your voice and whilst people may debate their views – you are completely entitled to your own. Whilst other may have their views, it’s important that you don’t lose face – of course, you may deliberate how you feel and why you think the issue is important but at all times show respect and understand that others may not necessarily agree with you and that’s OK.

STICKS AND STONES

will break my bones, and words will never hurt? Wrong – there has been an increase, especially in the younger LGBT community, of people attempting to commit further self harm or worse, requiring counselling or support as they feel that they are being picked on at the moment. Whilst this topic is sensitive for many people, please ensure that something you say will not adversely effect someone else. Australian’s are great for putting on brave faces, but you don’t actually understand how a simple comment may effect someone. If you really want to say something, look in a mirror and tell it to yourself or a person you’re really close with who may understand your views. Don’t go spreading it to people you don’t know.

VOTE

Finally, there are many debates for and against, but at the end of the day – ensure you vote with what you believe in. Don’t leave it until the last minute or think that it won’t count because at the end of the day, it will. Every vote matters.

My love to everyone.
