Country superstar Dolly Parton has declared her support for same sex marriage in Australia and endorsed a Yes vote in current the postal survey.

Speaking to ABC News Breakfast, Parton said that gay couples should have the right to wed.

“Why can’t they be as miserable as us heterosexuals in their marriages,” she joked.

“I think love is love and we have no control over that – I think people should be allowed to marry.

“I’m not God, you know. I believe God, I think God is the judge. I don’t judge or criticise and I don’t think we’re supposed to.”

Parton joins a long list of national and international celebrities that have come out in support of marriage equality since the postal survey process began.

A handful of Australian celebrities, including Hugh Sheridan, Danielle Cormack, and Courtney Act, recently united for a GLAAD video to encourage people around the country to vote Yes.

Famous actors such as Hugh Jackman and Morgan Freeman have also vocalised their support for the campaign.
