Campaign against equality vote

PARENTS and Friends of Lesbians and Gays has stepped up its campaign against a marriage equality plebiscite with the release of a new advertisement.

The ad highlights the fact politicians can ignore the result of a plebiscite, as well as the plebiscite's $160million price tag.

PFLAG national spokeswoman Shelley Argent said: "As parents, we will not stand by and watch the government subject our LGBTI children to the indignity and humiliation of a national vote about their basic rights.” The ad will run on social media.
