17 celebrities who urge you to vote yes for marriage equality in Australia

Margot Robbie, Troye Sivan and Flume support marriage equality in Australia

Australia will have a public vote on whether to allow same-sex marriage and some celebrities are getting behind the cause.

Despite community protest, Australians will vote in a non-binding postal plebiscite to a cost of $122 million (€82,281 Β£75,191)

Activists say the public divide of opinion will make LGBTI people vulnerable to needless scrutiny.

But celebrities are coming out in support of people enrolling to vote and voting yes.
