Way To Go, Australia

The 24th country in the world where marriage equality is for everyone.

Couldn’t be prouder πŸ™‚

That’s all three of the countries I’ve lived in! I’m sensing a pattern here.

  1. It’s about time.

    They want you to pay taxes, support the schools, vote – and yet tell you you cannot marry whom you love? And have children with them? Excuse me? This leads to people not making the commitment to each other and society and… and is very bad for society.

    Happy Day, Australia.

  2. You need to go on a world tour. You are obviously some kind of catalyst.

    From here in Australia, I celebrate with the rest of the world! What a longtime coming, a shitty campaign by the No vote, and a ridiculous political game by so many in power. BUT, we did it! People worked long and hard, and should be proud of their visibility and dedication. Now my lesbian friends together over 30 years can marry, and these guys at 98 & 74 can finally marry:

    It’s always been about Love, and equal rights; now we have it all. Australia feels very positive and celebratory right now (plus celebrants are going to make a fortune!). Thank you for posting, and being supportive all along of course xxOO

  5. As an Aussie who lives in Brisbane Australia, it makes me proud that ‘my people’ are being patted on the back by the international community for this decision to become the 26th country in the world to enshrine in law the legality of same-sex marriage.

    The Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has placed the historic law change in the same category as the 1967 referendum to count indigenous people in the national census.These are all milestones for a society on the road to becoming a more informed, life-affirming and ‘modern’ community of human souls.

    As all Australians know, the thing that tipped the politicians hand was last months non-binding postal vote (public opinion poll) that resulted in 61% of the 13 million respondents voting to support the introduction of laws legalising same sex marriage.

    Yah Australia!
