Marriage equality advocates are hailing November as one of the most successful yet in the push for same-sex marriage.

Australian Marriage Equality national spokesperson Alex Greenwich said a host of forums will be held over the next month for those wanting to help out and join in the campaign.

“Support for equality at both a state and federal level has been overwhelming and is growing at an exponential rate,” Greenwich said.

“Our task now is to keep that moment going.”

AME will hold workshops in Melbourne and Sydney on December 4 and 5 respectively.

“To help inform conversations at the level of individual electorates, workplaces and dinner tables we will be conducting workshops on how to advocate and lobby for marriage equality,” he said.

Sydney followed Melbourne’s lead over the weekend with a marriage equality rally at Sydney Town Hall.

So far three states, Tasmania, Victoria and South Australia have made moves to introduce same-sex marriage in state laws and many federal parliamentarians have spoken out in favour of same-sex marriage. Queensland is also understood to be considering civil partnership legislation.

The workshops will run for three-hours over two sessions by anti-homophobia campaigner Daniel Witthaus.
Witthaus this year completed a one-man, 38-week tour of Australia to challenge prejudice and discuss homophobia in remote parts of Australia.
