Why Hugh Jackman Is Voting ‘Yes’ For Marriage Equality

Actor Hugh Jackman has share a passionate message of support for same-sex marriage on Twitter.

“We believe all Australians deserve to be treated equally under the law that’s why Deb & I are voting YES,” the 48-year-old X-Men star wrote.

Hugh’s wife Deborah Lee-Furness, who he’s been married to for 21 years, also retweeted the message.

“Thanks mate we need some Wolverine on our side,” one fan responded.

“Yet another reason to adore @RealHughJackman,” another wrote.

In 2012, Hugh first backed the reform in a marriage equality declaration he signed that read: “Marriage should be about love and respect, not discrimination.

“Australia is at its best when we value equality over prejudice and fear. That’s why we support marriage equality for same-sex couples.

“Marriage equality will help remove discrimination against same-sex couples and their children.”
