Margot Robbie supports Australia marriage equality campaign

Margot Robbie has shown her support for Kylie Minogue’s fiance Joshua Sasse’s campaign for marriage equality in Australia.
While countries such as the U.S. and the U.K. have legalised same-sex marriages, it is still illegal in Australia and British actor Joshua, who is engaged to the Aussie pop princess, was so bewildered by it that he set up the Say I Do Down Under campaign and is getting celebrities to wear the white T-shirt with the slogan next to a picture of Australia featuring rainbow colours which represent the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community.
He launched the social media campaign at the weekend (01-02Oct16) and Margot has already shown her support for the cause by wearing a black version of top.
“Huge thankyou @margotrobbie for being such a CHAMP and supporting our cause THANK YOU THANK YOU Margot!!,” a campaign representative wrote next to the picture of Margot on the campaign’s Instagram account.
Other celebrities joining the cause include country singer Dolly Parton, who posed with Kylie and Joshua, who is wearing the T-shirt, Jake Shears from the Scissor Sisters, U.S. TV host Kelly Ripa, Lucifer actress Rachael Harris and Australian music duo Nervo.
To promote the launch at the weekend, Kylie wrote on Instagram, “@joshuasasse has created the @sayidodownunder campaign to promote marriage equality for the #LGBT community in Australia – please spread the word – repost, like and watch this space to see how you can get involved!!”
She had previously told Australia’s Daily Telegraph the laws were “backward” and Joshua was determined to fight for gay rights. “He just can’t fathom that same-sex marriage hasn’t been legalised and of course I back him up on that,” she explained.
Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull promised to hold a plebiscite, or national vote, on proposals to change the law but it’s unclear if or when this will take place.
