Ding dong down under! Eurovision stars celebrate results of Australian same-sex marriage poll

68

On Wednesday morning, local time, Australia learned the results of the postal survey on same-sex marriage. An overwhelming majority of Australians — 61.6%, more than 7.8 million people — voted ‘yes’ to the question “Should the law be changed to allow same-sex couples to marry?”

All that remains now is for the government to act on the poll results and pass the necessary legislation — which the Prime Minister is pushing to have done before Christmas.

And Eurovision stars are celebrating the results along with ordinary Aussies, sharing plenty of rainbow emojis and kind words.
