    The Labour Government passed its Marriage Equality Same-Sex Bill. Under the law, same sex couples will be marry in the Australian Capital Territory by the end of the year.

    This is amazing progress. I am so proud to be Australian.

    This for sure is progress , and i am bloody happy they finally decide to join the train .
    As my mum and dad used to say when i was growing up , love happens and the gender has nothing to do with it ..My parents are quite open minded when you think that this discussion was taking place in the early 70's..

    That's wonderful news, although from what I'm reading it isn't Australia, just a part of it, and the Federal Australian government is about to challenge it. icon_sad.gif
