Appearing on the program will be actress Magda Szubanski, Archbishop of Sydney Glenn Davies, Liberal Party Vice President Karina Okotel and Frank Brennan, who is a Jesuit Priest and Law Professor.

Anglican Archbishop Glenn Davies made headlines recently when he announced the the Diocese of Sydney had donated one millions dollars to the ‘No’ campaign.

Karina Okotel has been a leading voice of the ‘No’ campaign, but has struggled in previous debates to explain how marriage equality would specifically affect religious freedoms in Australia. She’s previously accused the ‘Yes’ campaign of being racist.

Magda Szubanski is one of Australia’s most loved actors, she shared with the public that she was same sex attracted on Valentine’s Day in 2012. Szubanski released a statement proclaiming her support for marriage equality and later that evening made an emotional declaration on Channel Ten’s The Project.

Frank Brennan is a Jesuit priest and CEO of Catholic Social Services Australia. He is superior of the Jesuit community at Xavier House in Canberra. Previously he has been professor of law at Australian Catholic University and Adjunct Professor at the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture, the Australian National University College of Law and the National Centre for Indigenous Studies.

Considered one of Australia’s great Catholic thinkers, Father Brennan has argued that same sex marriage should be legalised for the “common good”.

Q and A is on ABC TV at 9:35pm in Western Australia, but can be streamed live on iView at 6:35pm.
