Australian Rugby League great, Greg Inglis who is currently playing fullback and Captains the South Sydney Rabbitohs, has made his stance on marriage equality in his home country of Australia pretty clear.

The professional sportsman who in 2009 won the Golden Boot Award as the world’s best player, is now inked-up with two short parallel lines forming the equals symbol in support for marriage equality.

Marriage equality in Australia appears to have stalled with the country now falling behind in its LGBTI rights when compared to its closest neighbour, New Zealand and one of its closest allies the United States.


Inglis has been a long time supporter of marriage equality and in 2013 tweeted ‘I support gay marriage..  … …’

The NRL (National Rugby League) is one of nearly 400 organisations that co-signed a letter last month calling for same-sex marriage to be legalised in Australia.

Inglis also had a dotted figure-eight tattooed, showing his support for the One Disease organisation as well.
