Liberal Democrats senator David Leyonhjelm has called on the Australian Greens to reconsider their opposition to a plebiscite on same-sex marriage.

Senator Leyonhjelm, who introduced his own freedom to marry bill to the Senate in 2014, says while he would prefer the parliament legislate, the plebiscite is the quickest path to delivering same-sex marriage.

"If it's left to the Greens, Saudi Arabia will have marriage equality before we do," Senator Leyonhjelm told AAP on Monday.
