It's official! All amendments to the bill aimed at 'protecting religious freedoms' (aka: making it easier to discriminate against gay couples) were defeated, It's passed through both houses, same sex marriage is finally officially legal!

154 votes in favour and four votes against it.

These historic reforms will commence on Saturday 9 December 2017. As from Saturday, same-sex couples will be able to lodge a Notice of Intended Marriage to commence the one month minimum notice period required before the solemnisation of marriages under the Marriage Act. This means THE FIRST WEDDINGS WILL BE HELD JUST A FEW DAYS INTO THE NEW YEAR.

Is that your National Anthem by chance?

More of an unofficial anthem :laughga: 

It's lyrics are "We are one, but we are many and from all the lands on earth we come - we share a dream and sing with one voice 'I am, you are, we are Australian!'"

So it just kinda fits with the whole equality thing :)
