Greens MP Adam Bandt says: "What a big day for love because, despite the years of bigotry and hate, and despite the years of violence and lies, and the ignorance and fear, love has won and it is time to pop the bubbly. I'm going to keep it short and sweet. Because it is time to let the bells ring and let the people sing because love has won!"
I too would like to thank everyone who made this happen and voted fairly. Not just the LGBT community but the "straight" community too, who have by and large shown a huge amount of support, empathy and understanding which makes my heart sing, and it feels like there is much less of a division because of it.
