I SUPPORT MARRIAGE EQUALITY!Someone in Australia is illegally using my picture for a campaign against marriage equality. So wrong. Not okay— Meghan Trainor (@Meghan_Trainor) August 23, 2017
The anti-gay marriage campaigner's plan backfired even further when Trainor then took to Instagram to encourage the Australian contingent of her 8.8 million followers to register to vote in the country's upcoming poll. Alogside a picture reminding Australians to register before the Thursday night deadline (August 24) the singer wrote: "VOTE YES FOR MARRIAGE EQUALITY. LOVE IS LOVE."
I've said it before, Everyone should be able to love who they want. I support equality, period. 💖👬👭💖— Meghan Trainor (@Meghan_Trainor) August 23, 2017
Australia’s upcoming vote will see citizens at home and abroad who are aged 18 before August 24 – the registration deadline – answer the question: ‘Should the law be changed to allow same-sex couples to marry?’ The vote is not a plebiscite, and therefore citizens will not be compelled to vote and the result is not binding on politicians. Those wishing to vote are encouraged to return their voting forms by October 27, while ballots received after November 7 will not be counted. The result is expected to be made public on November 15. Meanwhile, Australian actor Chris Hemsworth came out in support of same-sex marriage this week, encouraging his fellow Aussies to vote 'Yes' in the upcoming poll.
