Sia Marriage Equality Acceptance Speech at 2016 ARIAs

Sia Created the Most Incredible Moment of the Night at the ARIAs — and She Wasn't Even There

Australian singer-songwriter Sia took out one of the biggest gongs of the night at the ARIAs on Wednesday and while she wasn't there to accept it, her alternative was easily one of the best moments of the night. Scooping up the Best Female Artist award, Sia asked Stand Up Events founder Angie Greene to accept it on behalf of Australian Marriage Equality. The vibe in the room was palpable as they clapped Angie on stage — and her emotional speech is one that will stay with us for a while.

"Outrageously Sia asked me to accept this award on behalf of Australian marriage equality," she said to loud cheers and a standing ovation. "This award is for every single non-hetero and gender diverse person who can currently not marry the person that they love in this country. This award is for our friends, our family, our work friends — all our mates. Bottom line is Australia, that no one's lives and the people that they love should be up for debate. You have the opportunity now not to just do a great thing, but the right thing. I'm very proudly an ambassador for marriage equality and on behalf of these guys I cannot thank Sia enough, you're an absolute boss and thank you so much for using this platform to send such a powerful, important and crucial message."
