This Project documents long term gay and lesbian committed relationships. According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics the median length of an Australian marriage is 8.7 years so I have used this number as the minimum length of time to be part of this project.
I believe that gay,lesbian and transgendered relationships deserve the same legal rights and public respect as heterosexual ones.
But this project is about more than just "gay marriage" I really hope that these simple images of loving couples will help reduce homophobia, will inspire young people to keep their romantic dreams and for parents to know that their gay, lesbian and transgendered children have just as much chance of having a long term and happy family life as anyone else.
The Commitment Project is aimed to show the wider community that for all our differences we still fundamentally want the same thing, to be allowed to love who we love.
