Miley Cyrus and Sia and others celebrate Australia’s same-sex marriage vote
Today (Nov. 15) Australia has officially said ‘yes’ to marriage equality and stars including Miley Cyrus and Sia have taken to Twitter to celebrate the results.
61.6% of Australian voters had chosen in favour of legalising same-sex marriage in a non-binding postal survey. A bill to change the law was subsequently submitted into the Senate, with Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull saying the government would aim to pass legislation by Christmas.
Among the celebrities wich are openly celebrating the good news, there is Miley Cyrus (Australian actor Liam Hemsworth’s fiancée), who wrote: “Yes!!!!! Congrats Australia! Every step taken is one closer to World Peace! Love love love you! Proud to be Australian by association lol (laugh out loud).”
Also Australian singer Sia showed considerable enthusiasm writing: “The Australian people have spoken loud and clear. #LoveIsLove,” with three rainbow flags, the symbol of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.
Ricky Martin posted “Today is a great day for human rights. #Australia says YES to marriage equality. BRAVO! This makes me so happy.”
Sam Smith added: “YES YES YES YES YES AUSTRALIA – YES!!!!!!! I WISH I WAS THERE CELEBRATING WITH YOU ALL. Seeing my feed full of rainbows leaves me breathless. So happy. Everyone tweet rainbows until your thumbs hurt!!!!!!!”
Kylie Minogue tweeted: “#Australia … #MarriageEquality Love is love, always was love, always will be love,” and Ellen DeGeneres added, “It’s a g’day. Way to go Australia. #MarriageEquality.”
