Australian Rugby Hunk Is Helping To Fight For Marriage Equality
We're absolutely in love with Australian rugby hunk David Pocock!
Time and time again, he's proven to be a massive ally to the LGBT community.
Then, last year, he appeared in a campaign to speak out against homophobia.
Now, he's helping out his fellow Aussies by supporting the fight for marriage equality.
A teammate, 28-year-old Israel Folau, came out against same-sex marriage, writing:
“I love and respect people for who they are and their opinions, but personally I will not support gay marriage.”
In response, David tweeted:
In addition, David had been helping to encourage people to verify their enrollment and eligibility to ensure they'd be able to participate on the postal vote for marriage equality.
Additionally, David publicly declared that he wouldn't get married to his partner, Emma Palandri, until same-sex marriage was made legal.
Thank you for being a tremendous ally, David Pocock!
