According to the openly lesbian Senator Penny Wong, Australia is about to allow equal marriage.

Fairfax Media has just published the results of a new poll showing that 72% of Australians are in favor of marriage equality.

In addition, Senator David Leyonhjelm announced he will introduce an amendment to change the Marriage Act to include marriage between same-sex people in September but only if Liberal MPs were allowed a conscience vote.

“For those of you who have a problem with homosexuality for some reason or another, we’re not asking for your approval,” Leyonhjelm said.

“We merely ask for your tolerance.”
