Olivia Newton-John; much loved Australian Actress, has publicly given her support for marriage equality recently.
She joined other celebrities including Hugh Jackman, film critics David Stratton and Margaret Pomeranz, and costume designer Lizzy Gardiner in her pledge.
“With respect to marriage equality I believe that no one has the right to judge and deny couples who love each other the ability to make a marriage commitment. Love is love,” Newton-John said.
Australian screenwriter and director Stephan Elliott is said to be announcing the support of more high profile Australians at a marriage equality fundraiser this week.
Many welcomed the support including Australian Marriage Equality National Convener Alex Greenwich.
“Australians admire celebrities like Olivia Newton-John and Hugh Jackman because they reflect our values of tolerance and a fair go for all, values which they are reminding us apply just as much to same sex couples as to other Australians,” Mr Greenwich said.
