Ian Thorpe and boyfriend urge Australians to support same-sex marriage

Ian Thorpe and his boyfriend are hoping to get as many Australians as possible to vote in favour of same-sex marriage.

Politicians in Australia’s Senate have repeatedly shot down attempts to hold a referendum on equal marriage. In 2016, the Liberal Party was re-elected with a promise that they would let voters decide on same-sex marriage through a popular vote.

However, the vote was blocked, and the result could have technically been ignored by lawmakers anyway. The government is now going to hold a plebiscite to gauge public opinion on the issue.

Ian Thorpe – a five-time gold medal winning swimmer – has unveiled a new video with his boyfriend, model Ryan Channing, in a bid to get people to update their electoral details so they can show their support for same-sex marriage.
