The Australian Greens have labelled the defeat of the plebiscite bill in the Senate as a win for common sense, equality and justice.

“Tonight the plebiscite on marriage equality was defeated in the Senate, and tonight we moved forward towards equality,” said the Australian Greens’ LGBTIQ spokesperson Senator Janet Rice.

“The Greens are proud to have stood with lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex and queer communities against this plebiscite and we recognise, share and draw strength from the determination of this community to achieve the equality everyone deserves.

“Today is proof of something we already know to be true: we will win this,” concluded Senator Rice.
