Re: Marriage Equality in Australia

As Australians and international visitors of all sexual identities come together to celebrate the 2016 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, we wanted to come out and show our support too for marriage equality in Australia.

As one of the world’s leading online accommodation booking websites, with properties ranging from international chains to local B&Bs, knows that love and life comes in all shapes and sizes.

Regardless of gender, race, religion or sexual identity, we support the right of our employees to work and live in an environment free of prejudice and discrimination and enjoy the same freedoms that opposite-sex couples enjoy.

Australians are increasingly supportive of marriage equality, with a recent study showing 72 per cent believe same-sex couples should be allowed to marry. We agree. Globally, around 20 countries have passed laws to allow same-sex marriage, including the US, UK, Ireland, New Zealand and Canada – which did so with less support for marriage equality than Australia right now.

Times have changed. Diversity makes the workplace and the world a better place.

Whether you’re Australian or a visitor down under, we wish you a happy Mardi Gras.

Best wishes,

Abhiram Chowdhry
Vice President Asia-Pacific
