Excuse us while we… yesssssssssssssssssssssssssah. The bill to legalise same-sex marriage in Australia has passed the Senate with 43 votes to a measly 12. Next week, it goes to the Lower House for a final vote, before it’s expected to pass into Australian law. Just like that.
We need a majority vote from MPs before the Marriage Act is changed, but Malcolm Turnbull has promised to legalise same-sex marriage by Christmas — recently announcing that the House of Reps wont break for holidays until the law is passed. Yes!
