Australia Legalizes Same Sex Marriage

The Australian Parliament has voted overwhelmingly to legalize same-sex marriage in the country after years of conservative resistance to enact a change the public clearly wanted.

“This belongs to us all,” Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull, a longtime supporter of same-sex marriage who had previously failed to get it legalized, said on Thursday. “This is Australia: fair, diverse, loving and filled with respect. For every one of us this is a great day.”

There were just four votes against the bill. It came three weeks after a national referendum showed strong public support for gay marriage.

The Senate passed the legislation last week.
