#5 Geoffrey Winters Walks Us Through The Marriage Act

Podcast cover
Read more
He was the young, gay, indigenous lawyer running for the Liberal Party against the powerful Tanya Plibersek in Sydney. And now he's in our lounge room. Answering our dumb questions.
Geoffrey Winters explained the racial origins of the marriage act and what you actually do and don't have to do (and say and NOT say)to get married - and what he thinks on the whole thing.
He also has a terrific story about the gay staffer who wrote themselves out of weddings - but into porn. Yeah, it's incredible.
Also our names are Kyran Wheatley and Rhys Nicholson. And the effortless pop gem you hear is by the incredible Brendan Maclean. Look him up. He's amazing.
And subscribe so you don't miss anything, because we kind of just are going to make eps and put them up rather than keep some sort of schedule.
And tell a friend about us - most important. If this debate is going to get ugly we want to be the place where we actually hear what people think. If you reckon you know someone else who would like that... tell them about Save The Date.
Oh and our predictions for the Date to Save haven't changed.
Ok. Enjoy, see you next time.
