As Australia holds a postal vote on whether to allow same-sex marriage, pro-equality sentiment is popping up in unexpected places.

For one woman, it turned up during her breakfast.

Chrys Stevenson went to Subway in Cranbourne for a breakfast sub, and came away with a whole lot more. She shared a photo on Twitter of her receipt, which said:

We believe in EQUALITY for ALL Australians.

What about you?

Vote 'YES' in the Postal Survey.

Do it because it's the right thing to do.

This isn’t the work of Subway itself, but of the franchise.

The owner of the store, Steve King, told Mashable that the receipts had been in circulation for weeks, following a store campaign for a ‘yes’ vote.

In a statement, Subway Australia says:

Each franchisee is a small business owner in their local community with their own personal views and beliefs. At Subway respect for every individual is a core value. We are committed to treating every person with honour, dignity and respect — regardless of their beliefs, race, creed, sexual orientation or gender.
