Tony Abbott attended his sister’s lesbian wedding


The right-wing politician was one of the leading voices in the ‘No’ campaign during the same-sex marriage referendum in Australia and even that fact that his own sister Christine Forster was a lesbian did not convince him. He even claimed that it would be better for same-sex couples to disown their children to give them a chance to be brought up by straight couples. But as Forster tied the knot with her long-term partner Virginia, her brother came to congratulate her and was very kind. “It’s a great family occasion, very happy for Chris and Virginia and I’m looking forward to having a new sister-in-law,” Abbott said. He went on: “Chris has made it very clear that as a family we can all get on even though we don’t always agree on everything.”
