Community members have been urged by PFLAG Australia national spokeswoman Shelley Argent to write to the Queensland Government in support of Deputy Premier Andrew Fraser’s Civil Partnership Bill after the Australian Christian Lobby flooded the public consultation process on the bill with over 300 letters.

So far the consultation has only received 7 submissions from within the LGBTI community.

People only have until the end of today to make their views heard on the issue.

“Please write, even if its only two sentences,” Argent wrote on Facebook just after 1pm.

“This must be done today … Please state that you are in full support of this legislation but it should not be seen as a substitute for marriage.”

Submissions can be sent to lapcsesc@parliament.qld.gov.au
