Evlilik eşitliği yasası, 9 Aralık’ta Avustralya Parlamento’sundan geçti ama geleneksel 30 gün bekleme süresi dolayısıyla, istisnai durumları olan ve özel izin alanlar dışındaki birçok eşcinsel çift 9 Ocak’ı beklemek zorundaydı.
Aşağıdan, ülkedeki ilk eşcinsel düğünlerinden bazılarının fotoğraflarını gezebilirsiniz.
3.5 years ago I performed my first ceremony which was Corey and Pat’s commitment ceremony. Today, my journey came full circle as I attended their wedding on the first day same sex marriage became legal in Australia. I was enormously honoured to do so. For them, it’s been 10 years of patience to say I do. Today it finally happened. Today their love was finally seen as real, just and equal. #lovewins
