The referendum on May 22 will only be won if every person who supports Civil Marriage Equality mobilises the people they know to vote Yes.
The #YesX10 campaign, launched by the National LGBT Federation (NXF) at this year’s GALA Awards ceremony, is simple – just get out there and start the coversation with friends, family, co-workers and neighbours. In the run up to the historic referendum same-sex marriage, every vote counts.

Olivia McEvoy, Chair of the NXF, said, “Marriage Equality matters to different people for different reasons. For some it’s about allowing people to live in dignity, cherished and celebrated for who and what they are. For others it’s simply about allowing people to express their love fully. And for many, it is about creating a more equal society, where everyone can participate and fulfil their full potential. Marriage equality is good for business, good for the individual, and above all, good for family and society as a whole.”
Ms McEvoy continued: ‘The NXF believes this referendum will be won if people have the courage to tell the people they know about why marriage equality matters to them. Ultimately, it’s your own personal story that matters to your people, and only you can make sure your ten people vote yes on the day.’
