Forum - General: Artist News & Chat - Marriage Equality Support

This might seem like a random topic but tonight I went to the London Grammar concert (Amazing!) and they did a marriage equality show of support during their show (search #londongrammar on social media if you're curious to learn more).

Anyway, was curious to know which artists have showed their support for marriage equality?

Sia, Kylie, The Veronicas, Darren Hayes, David Campbell, Anthony Callea, Peking Duk all come to mind. Any others?
I did a quick google of selected Aussie and international with an Aussie connection artists (I've left out any who I couldn't find any conclusive statements from, doesn't mean they don't)

Guy Sebastian has long supported marriage equality.
Ricki Lee “I’m disgusted by our politicians and I will continue to use my voice until marriage equality is achieved.”
Ricky Martin
Jessica Mauboy
Tina Arena
Samantha Jade
Natalie Imbruglia
Dannii Minogue
Sam Sparro
Chris Martin
Ellie Goulding
NERVO
Skylar Grey
Mark Lizotte (Diesel)
Jake Shears (Scissor Sisters)

Probably lots of others, I'd be surprised to see many that publicly advocate a "NO" vote really.

Probably obvious but Troye Sivan and Missy Higgins definitely do. Jimmy Barnes is a very vocal supporter and Flume also showed his support around a month ago. That's all I can think of that haven't been mentioned for now.
Elton John told the crowd at his Wollongong show last night that they should all vote yes.

Quite fitting that he is only doing tours in regional areas where the no vote is assumed to be higher. Great move if that was planned.
Macklemore's performance at the NRL grandfinal was all cheers and applause.
Honestly, the only artist I can seriously think of actively pushing a no vote would be Kid Rock
Or Anita Bryant, Antlers. lol
lol Kid Rock
