Gay Bill sails through in Oz
– Gay couples will be able to legally marry in Australia after a same-sex marriage Bill sailed through parliament yesterday, ending decades of political wrangling.
There were loud cheers, hugs and sustained clapping in the 150-seat lower House of Representatives when all but four MPs voted in support of marriage equality, after the upper house Senate passed the Bill 43-12 last week.
“What a day for love, for equality, for respect!” Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull told the House. – AFP
