For Cairns resident Andrew Wheatland, the same-sex marriage postal survey is not just about getting married. Living in a regional area, it’s also about affirmation within a small community. “If we get a 'Yes' result it will be a really strong message to everyone who lives in regional areas this is a validation of who you are," he told SBS World News. Mr. Wheatland says he doesn’t have aspirations to wed yet - “I don’t even have a partner,” he says - but having the choice is important.
