Australians have said yes to marriage equality!

In Australia, we are more in doubt than ever! Indeed, elections are ongoing and we do not know yet the final result, but whatever the winner unfortunately it might lack the votes to advance marriage equality.

Back in Australia where the new prime minister Malcolm Turnbull finally decided to hold the plebiscite on marriage equality and where the Australian Marriage Equality group (AME) announces that it only needs eight votes of deputies to approve the equal marriage bill.
