Magda announces gay marriage support

ONE of Australia's most popular comedians is expected to come out as a lesbian today as she joins the campaign for same-sex marriage.

Magda Szubanski, star of Kath & Kim, Fast Forward and the film Babe, will join other celebrities including Hugh Jackman and Jimmy Barnes in their support for Australians for Marriage Equality's campaign to legalise same-sex marriage.

Szubanski will also make a "personal statement" later today, anticipated to be in relation to her own sexuality.

She hinted at being a lesbian in a statement issued this morning.

"I am 1000 per cent in favour of gay marriage," she said.
