One small thing that I think I can do to promote the sought after change to the Marriage Act is to write to politicians and anyone else I can think of that might be able to influence the debate. (Please let me encourage you to do the same.) Last night I worte to Nick Xenephon who I assumed would be supporting the move for change. I was surprised and disappointed to learn that while he supports Civil Unions for same-sex couples he is yet to decided as to whether he will support the Marriage Act Amendment Bill 2010. In my response to that news, I have included a link to this video because it so eloquently says what hours of logical debate cannot. I trust you don't mind that I've done this.
A gently put but powerful message. There is a great deal to admire in the courage that you, your daughter and the rest of your family have shown in being willing to put this message "out there".
My partner is very much out in her school but it is a high school and I have been finding a big divide between what happens in primary schools and what happens in high schools. But having said that I know 'out' primary school teachers as well. At the end of the day your school/principal should be supporting your right to be out. Of all the 'advances' that DECS is making to tackle homophobia by students in schools they have done next to nothing to support gay teachers.
