!! OMG, WATCH: Australian senator breaks down during Marriage Equality debate as she talks of bullied gay friend !!

We need more powerful, allied voices like this speaking up for the community! Australian Senator Sarah Hanson-Young broke down in tears several times as she spoke at a debate over the marriage equality bill:

“In my small high school, one of my best friends was gay, and he struggled for a long time. And I remember thinking I never did quite enough to have his back. He was one of my bestest friends and we hung out and every now and then I told people to bugger off when they tried to pick on him. But it didn’t quite feel like it was enough – it was just, ‘well, that’s the way you are so that’s the way people are gonna treat you.’ Young people in Australia deserve better than that.”
