Marriage equality has finally become law in Australia, at last

“It was left to the last minute, but marriage equality is finally legal in Australia” writes Johnny Lieu for Marriage equality supporters gathered in front of Parliament House in Australia’s capital, Canberra, to be there for the historic decision.Although Australians voted overwhelmingly for marriage equality in mid-November, there had been a push by conservative politicians for amendments to the bill that claim to protect religious freedoms. Then, 28 days after royal assent, same-sex marriage will officially be legal in Australia.These have been labelled as “superfluous” by conservative politician Christopher Pyne, who said he would vote against the amendments.
