At midnight last night, the first wedding took place when West Australian politician Stephen Dawson and his partner Dennis Liddelow exchanged vows outside Parliament House in Canberra. These marriages may be short-lived, as the High Court of Australia will rule on the constitutionality of the law on Thursday.
But in the meantime, many families and friends are celebrating this step towards marriage equality in Australia.
Here’s a little story I recorded for my storytelling friend Gael Cresp who requested a story gift for her grand daughter who is being lovingly raised by two happily married woman in America. Production values are a little rough but sometimes you just have to get the story out there I think!
Congratulations from me to all who are celebrating Marriage Equality in Australia.
