Australia Legalizes Marriage Equality!1 min read

Love wins as Australian parliament votes in favor of gay marriage.

After an intense and at times harsh debate on marriage equality spanning more than a decade, Australia has voted in favor of love for all.

“What a day for love, for equality, for respect,” said Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull. “Australia has done it.”


The parliament erupted in a sea of applause, cheers and singing following the results of this historic vote.

 

 

Legislation passed effortlessly after Australians overwhelmingly supported marriage equality in a voluntary national poll.

Australian lawmakers hugged each other as supporters in the gallery began singing “I am, you are, we are Australian.”
