Same-sex couple makes history
KITTICHA Srijad (left) and Jarrukit Somjich have become the first same-sex couple to be married at Queensland’s Registry of Births Deaths and Marriages since the passing of the Marriage Equality Bill in December. The ceremony was followed by a celebration at a Thai restaurant. In a Facebook posting the couple said, “We just want to say thank you. Thank you to Australia.” Mr Somjich said, “I never thought this would happen. I never thought it would be legal.” A Gold Coast couple became the first same-sex couple to marry in Queensland last week.
