Jess Origliasso of The Veronicas checked in with her Twitter followers (@Jessicaveronica) earlier today, reacting to Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard saying she was “on the conservative side” of same-sex marriage “because of the way our society is and how we got here.” The Brisbane pop singer writes:
Disappointed, to say the least, in our Prime Minister Julia Gillard’s views on same sex marriage. Come on Australia, it’s 2011. Let us LOVE!!
How can we be proud to stand behind a leader, who is not proud enough to stand up and fight against the legal & social stigma’s that bound us?
