'I'm really hoping that it won't be a matter of years': Kylie Minogue's fiancé Joshua Sasse hopes marriage equality in Australia won't take too long… after vowing not to wed himself until the laws are passed
He's spearheading the campaign for same-sex marriage to be legalised in Australia.
And following the Labor party's decision to block the plebiscite on Wednesday, Joshua Sasse has revealed he hopes Prime Minister Michael Turnbull and the Liberal government won't take too long to make a decision on the matter.
'I'm really hoping that it won't be a matter of years, and that public and global change will turn the tide,' the 28-year-old actor told TheFIX just days after vowing he won't marry fiancée Kylie Minogue until the laws are changed.

The waiting game: Joshua Sasse has revealed he hopes he won't have to wait too long to marry Kylie Minogue, after vowing the pair won't wed until same-sex marriage is legal in Australia
'Hopefully we won't [have to wait to get married],' the British hunk added.
Joshua launched his Say I Do Down Under campaign last week with the full support of his partner.
The actor explained that he came to a decision along with the 48-year-old pop star to wait until equality is granted before tying the knot, because it 'doesn't feel right that we're planning to get married and go through all of this when we're running a campaign for marriage equality.'

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to pop star Kylie for comment.
Within a week of its launch, the campaign has received widespread support from fans on social media as well as celebrities.
Simon Baker, 47, and his wife Rebecca Rigg, 48, proudly wore the campaign's T-shirt in a photo shared via the actress' Instagram page.
British singer Ellie Goulding has also shown her support while touring the country, sporting the T-shirt this week.

Radio personalities Rove McManus and Sam Frost followed suit with their own post supporting the global campaign.
It comes after Ellen DeGeneres made the logo into an Emoji on her app.
The 58-year-old took to social media on Friday to share the logo, which is a drawing of the map of Australia in rainbow colours.

'I love this so much, I made it an emoji. @SayIDoDownUnder #SayIDoDownUnder (sic),' the talk show legend shared to her 35.3million Instagram followers and 62.6million fans on Twitter.
Last week, Joshua revealed he was 'shocked' when he found out same sex marriage wasn't already legal here at home.
Appearing on Sunrise on Thursday, Joshua announced: 'I wanted to tell you today on her behalf and our behalf that until this law has passed in Australia, we will not be getting married.'
Love is love: Kylie has also shown her huge support for the campaign by wearing its T-shirt in her Instagram post on Friday
He also said: 'Why are we anymore important than anybody else? It's not right, something has to be done about it.'
Joshua and Kylie were rumoured to be tying the knot in the singer's native Melbourne later this year, but the date will now be dependent on the government's actions.
The pair met last year when the Spinning Around hitmaker guest starred on her beau's TV drama Galavant.
They announced their engagement in an official post in the UK's Daily Telegraph in February.
