Mr HIBBINS — This weekend I was out and about in the Prahran electorate supporting marriage equality and encouraging people to fill out their surveys and post them back straightaway. The response from Prahran residents has been an overwhelming 'yes', with many residents anxious they had not received their surveys yet and very much keen to support marriage equality. I am in awe of the strength and resilience of the LGBTI community for all the rubbish they have had to put up with in their fight for equality, this survey being just one other example.

Thanks to everyone who joined me in Prahran and to others across Victoria who knocked on doors and spoke to voters. Let us keep the pressure on until marriage equality is achieved. I also note that last night Stonnington council passed a motion in support.
