An Australian dad has plastered his car in marriage equality stickers to support his gay son.
Geoff Thomas is a retired plumber, Vietnam veteran and loving dad of a gay son named Nathan.
Since Nathan came out 12 years ago Geoff has supported his son and advocated for marriage.
Now heâ€™s taking â€˜spreading the messageâ€™ a bit further â€“ by covering his utility car in pro-marriage equality stickers.
â€˜I was conditioned to be homophobic, and then one day my son comes out to me,â€™ he told BuzzFeed.
â€˜I had to ask myself the question â€“ what is it about gays that I didnâ€™t like? After that, I decided it was unfounded fear, ignorance and prejudice.
â€˜Then I came to the view that my son wasnâ€™t equal in law and that really got up my nose, so I became a very strong advocate for marriage equality.â€™
Now heâ€™s driving around in a car decked out in stickers, including those representing Parents, Family and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG).
It also features the slogan â€˜every man and his dog supports marriage equalityâ€™, a picture of Geoff and his dog, and the order for people to call their MP and Senator.
He normally spends a lot of time driving around Sydney, but Geoff said he wants his message to be seen by more people.
So heâ€™s going on a road trip, covering Melbourne, Mount Gambia, and the Reiverina region to show his support and speak to as many people as possible.
â€˜To me itâ€™s a civil rights issue. Itâ€™s got nothing to do with religion, nothing to do with gay people having babies,â€™ he said.
â€˜In the 12 years Iâ€™ve been advocating for this, Iâ€™m yet to hear a reasonable argument against it.â€™
For the curious, Geoff is documenting his trip on his Twitter account.
So far, he has already met a number of insipiring people who all shared their own message about marriage equality.
