Opaque Space is an Australian technology company with not only global partners, but universal interests – normally, our focus is on human spaceflight and astronautics, but today we feel it is important to have a visible stance on a more down to Earth issue.

As an equal opportunity employer and a diverse workplace, it’s important to us to publicly support the march towards equality. For our staff, and because it’s the right thing to do. Opaque Space supports marriage equality, echoing the sentiments of the majority of the Australian parliament [1] and almost two thirds of the Australian people[2].

The latest plebiscite proposal by the incumbent government is an expensive and unnecessary effort to undermine this support for marriage equality in parliament and invite a campaign of fear and doubt directed at the voting public. We therefore feel that it is necessary to use our voice counteract this: to express our strong support for equal rights for our staff, but also for our friends and family, so that we can secure an equal future for everyone.

OPX is a proud supporter for marriage equality.
