The Australian Parliament Just Passed Same-Sex Marriage Into Law:

equalityspeaks:

After years of hard-fought advocacy, over 20 failed bills, and an extraordinary, unprecedented national postal survey, same-sex marriage has finally become the law of the land in Australia.

Hundreds of LGBTI advocates and couples who have been waiting years for this moment watched on from the public gallery, sometimes raucously, as the House of Representatives passed a historic vote in favour of change on Thursday evening.

The passage of the bill brings Australia’s marriage laws in line with most other Western democracies, including New Zealand, England, Canada and the United States. It is the result of a campaign running in earnest since 2004.

Austria approves same-sex marriage :

Same-sex couples will be allowed to marry in Austria from 2019, according to a ruling by the country’s Constitutional Court announced on Tuesday.

“The resulting discriminatory effect is seen in the fact that through the different title of the family status, people living in same-sex partnerships have to disclose their sexual orientation even in situations in which it is not, and must not be, relevant and … are highly likely to be discriminated against,“ the court said in its ruling.

Congratulations, Austria!!! ❤️💛💚💙💜💕
