MORE than 50 Australian businesses have come together in a full page advertisement in today’s The Australian in a show of support for marriage equality.

Placed on page five of the national newspaper, the ad (scroll down to view in full) is seen as a statement from Australia’s biggest businesses declaring “corporate Australia supports marriage equality”.

Companies listed include Westpac, BT Financial, St George, ANZ, Commonwealth Bank, David Jones, Fitness First, Foxtel, Google, KPMG, Optus, PWC, Qantas, Slater & Gordon, Telstra and Virgin Money.

The Star Observer is also among the businesses listed.

These supporters, along with many more, have signed a letter of support calling for marriage equality to be legislated by Australian parliament.

Australian Marriage Equality national convenor Rodney Croome said the business community’s support for marriage equality reflected the importance it placed on treating all staff and customers.

“I applaud Australia’s business community for its leadership on marriage equality, and for the powerful message it is sending to our federal representatives about moving forward quickly on the reform,” he said.
