The Australian Greens welcome today’s ‘yes’ result and look forward to passing cross-party legislation in parliament as soon as possible.
“I am delighted at today’s result. Australia has voted ‘yes’ to love, ‘yes’ to human rights, ‘yes’ to equality,” said Senator Janet Rice, Australian Greens LGBTIQ spokesperson.
“I know that right across the country there will be celebration and relief that Australians chose love and voted ‘yes’. I can’t wait to hear the wedding bells ringing for LGBTIQ couples as soon as possible.”
