November 16, 2017 and January 9th, 2018.
These are the dates that mean so much to the LGBTI community and all those who support their rights to marry whoever they love (all 61.6% of us to exact). These are the dates Australian History changed. The day that we voted a big YES to supporting marriage equality and the day that the first same-sex marriages were legally recognised and held.
It took a while -we fought, protested and shed tears for fairness, for love and commitment and for progress- until we won. And win we did!
We united in love and support of those whose right to marry their love, that, up to these dates- been discriminate against. Now, let the celebrations and the magic of marriage for all begin! Bring it on 2018!
