Summary

"Australia is now the only developed English-speaking country where same-sex couples can't marry. In this timely book, one of Australia's leading marriage equality advocates goes beyond the slogans and sound bites to explain why the nation is debating marriage equality, why the reform matters and how reform can be achieved. Along the way he considers the history of freedom to marry in Australia, what debate on marriage equality reveals about his home state of Tasmania, and how gay identity and marriage have evolved to the point where marriage equality is not only possible but likely."--Publisher's website.
