$120 million later and it only took 10 seconds to vote on it the way that Australians have wanted for over a decade. What a waste of money, but nonetheless this is really good news!

Now we can focus on the important things like those bloody crocodiles!

in celebration, let's all reflect by rewatching bob katter's random outburst a week or so ago. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ih1EuMLspY

What a shocking outcome, I'm glad we had a large and expensive poll beforehand

Also for the record for any foreigners, this government basically did everything they could to delay this for as long as possible. They deserve none of the credit.

All the terrible amendments that allowed businesses in the wedding industry to legally discriminate against same-sex couples have been defeated too, which is doubly good news!

Heart wrenching moment when the house started singing We Are Australian. That brought tears! It's about bloody time. Edit: Shamelessly stealing a better link ;D https://www.facebook.com/abcnews.au/videos/10157742452844988/

It was so heartbreaking listening to the hateful and venomous campaign rhetoric that the Australian LGBT community had to endure over these months. Growing up gay is hard enough without argument over your rights and humanity being part of everyday conversation. I only hope this vote brings some closure and relief. Much love from California to my Aussie brothers and sisters. ❤

It's amazing. I just spent three weeks down there and the amount of rainbow flags and signs in almost every store window was really heartwarming. In Melbourne it felt like everyone was so connected by it, nothing like where I'm from in the states.

The ~~plebiscite~~ non-compulsory non-binding opinion poll was a waste of time and money but I'm glad we got to this point.

What happened to that couple from Australia who heartened to divorce if gay marriage was ever legalized?

I was watching the verdict online for about an hour before it got put into law. The amount of blabbering idiots that tried to get their amendments in was astonishing. Thank God they were all voted down !
