The topic of marriage equality doesn’t look like going away any time soon, and Sydney-based songstress Elizabeth Rose has entered the debate via her new single ‘Division’, which was released yesterday.
Released in conjunction with Australian Marriage Equality, Elizabeth is insistent that two people who love each other should be free to marry and have their relationship recognised legally, regardless of their gender.
“Australia is tipped as the ‘lucky’ country, but reflecting upon what we stand for, I’m not sure that we are all that we’re cracked up to be. Our peers fall victim to acts of discrimination and are denied the right to equality. For a country that boasts of multi-culturalism and acceptance, why aren’t we accepting of this?” the singer asks.
“Less than a week ago Ireland became the nineteenth country to allow same sex marriage, they join the Netherlands, Argentina, Brazil, Sweden, Norway, France, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, Spain and the U.K. We are moving towards this significant moment in Australian history and I urge people to accept and embrace this need for equality in our country.”
Co-produced by Dennis Dowlut, ‘Division’ is available as a ‘pay what you want’ download from her OFFICIAL WEBSITE for two weeks, with all proceeds going directly to Australian Marriage Equality to be used in their ongoing fight for the equality cause.
