In one of the biggest events across Australia for 2017, the Australian Federal Parliament has passed the marriage equality law last Thursday. This historic moment follows the results of the Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey on 15th November where 61.1% of Australians voted YES for marriage equality. Australia is the 26th country to have achieved marriage equality.
We celebrated the YES result of the Australian Marriage Law Postal Survey at Cultural Perspectives today. Of all eligible Australians who participated in the survey, 61.6% voted YES supporting a change to Australian law to allow same-sex couples to marry.
