Same-sex marriage legalised in Australia
Same-sex marriage has been made legal in Australia after politicians voted to pass a landmark bill. The move comes after Australians voted ‘Yes’ in a postal survey last month following a decade of debate on the issue. The bill was passed just before 6pm local time on Thursday (7am GMT) as politicians voted 43 to 12 in favour. The law is likely to come in in about a month with the first same-sex weddings to take place in February. Gay rights advocates began celebrating outside Australia's Parliament, in Canberra, hours before the bill was passed.
