It’s a Yes

The results are in: Australia officially votes ‘Yes’ for same-sex marriage.

Just writing that made us feel backwards, but we’re not here to taint arguably one of the best moments for LGBTQI rights that Australia’s ever seen. Old, white, conservative men might have stranglehold on our government, but thanks to the continued campaigning from all involved, the same-sex plebiscite has officially come back with a 61.6% yes vote from the Australian public.

Fuck other people telling you how to live your life. Congratulations to everyone in LGBTQI communities across Australia, and those who have supported them in their fight. Now, to get it through parliament.
