You may have heard a thing or two about marriage equality in recent weeks. Perhaps.
Australians are being given the opportunity to have their say in a farcical survey which serves to suggest whether or not the LGBTQI community should have the right to marry.
And we want to introduce you to the brilliant woman leading the way for the ‘Yes’ campaign.
"I've been doing this for three years now, " says Middleton. "And I'm not exactly the person that people expect, sitting in my pearls and my colours."
She tells Mia Freedman, "I'm a Liberal voter, catholic, ex-investment banker, married to my husband for 21 years, and an incredibly conservative person."
Middleton isn't wrong. When we think of the Marriage Equality campaign, few people think of a conservative, heterosexual woman as the one leading the charge.
Listen: Janine Middleton explains to Mia Freedman the role women having in making Marriage Equality happen. Post continues after audio.
"I volunteered three years ago with the Marriage Equality campaign... it initially came about because of Ian Thorpe... when he came out, I was really moved by it, to a point where I was crying around the house," Middleton says.
