Australia's same-sex marriage vote to be revealed


Australia's non-binding postal vote results on same-sex marriage will be revealed today.

Media personality and former Wallabies player Peter FitzSimons penned a column yesterday arguing that Australia lagged behind New Zealand in progressivism.

Mr FitzSimons joins The AM Show about the mood in Australia, with gay commentator Steve Oats, who campaigned for marriage equality in New Zealand, explains how even a 'yes' vote won't matter just yet.  

On the upcoming results, Mr FitzSimons says:

It’s a matter of human rights. It’s about removing discrimination.
