#TheyGetToVote Trends As LGBTI Australia Share Homophobic Abuse Stories

Aussie comedian Josh Thomas created a simple hashtag #TheyGetToVote that has snowballed into a social movement as LGBTI Australians share their homophobic abuse stories on social media.

#TheyGetToVote shines a light on the type of people who will be given a free vote on same-sex marriage in the government’s postal survey.

Some of the tweets contain horrific and graphic descriptions of homophobic abuse and violence.
