Aussie actress Magda Szubanski last night confirmed that she is gay.

Magda decided to reveal her sexuality as part of a campaign to legalise gay marriage in Australia, and appeared on The Project to discuss gay rights.

She told The Project, "I absolutely identify as gay... and it must be hard for people who don't experience it to know what the pressures of being gay are. When you are forced into this position you almost feel that you have to choose, you just want to give of yourself."

Earlier in the day Magda released a statement which read, "I am 1,000 per cent in favour of gay marriage. We pay taxes, fight wars for this country, nurse you when you are sick, make you laugh, sing and dance for you, play netball for you, star in your movies, cook your meals, decorate your store windows.

"And, chances are, gay people designed whatever it is you're wearing. All Australians, including gay Australians, should have exactly the same rights, including the right to love, marry and take care of our partners."
