Hunger Games actor Liam Hemsworth: Same-sex marriage is ‘a human right’
Actor Liam Hemsworth has added his voice to the same-sex marriage debate in Australia.
The Hunger Games actor posted on Instagram last night, encouraging all Australians to vote in favour of marriage equality.
Under a rainbow-flagged image of his home nation, he wrote “I personally do not believe that same sex marriage should come down to a vote. I believe it’s a HUMAN RIGHT to be able to marry the person you love regardless of gender.”
“To all the Australians that care about equality and human rights please say YES to same sex marriage. Let’s not be silly about this. Vote YES for same sex marriage in Australia.”
Hemsworth has joined his fiancée Miley Cyrus in speaking passionately about why Australians should tick the yes box on their postal vote.
Last month she posted a passionate Tweet saying: “Australia !!!!! Vote 4 Marriage Equality! Aussies are some of the most beautifully free spirited and open minded people I’ve ever gotten the chance to meet! Everyone deserves to love and marry who they choose!
“I will be even more proud to call myself Aus by association 😉 if this law is passed! Love Love Love! It’s never toooo much and it’s never enough! More LOVE.”
Cyrus revealed in a recent interview that the 27-year-old Liam Hemsworth “doesn’t want to be called a straight dude”.
His brother, Thor actor Chris Hemsworth, is also fighting for equal marriage in Australia.

Last month, the older Hemsworth sibling said: “Dear open minded, free speaking, laid back, life loving Aussies. Marriage is about love and commitment and, in a country based on equal citizenship, it should be available to everyone! Vote now for marriage equality.”
Support for equal marriage has plummeted this week, proving that the divisive campaign run by anti-LGBT activists is having an impact.
A poll, run by The Guardian Essential polling, shows that support for same-sex marriage has dropped to 55 percent – down from 59 percent two weeks ago.
Opposition has intensified and is now at 34 percent, rising three percent in two weeks.
Australians have over a month to return their postal ballots and the result of the non-binding public vote will be announced on November 15.
