Australia Gay & Lesbian Weddings & LGBT Friendly Wedding Vendors
Congratulations Australia & Congrats Tim Wilson!
And Congratulations to Tim Wilson, the openly gay member of Parliament who proposed to his partner, Ryan Bolger during his emotional same sex marriage debate to the Parliament. While they already considered themselves engaged, the rings they wore on their left hands, he said, were their answers to a question that they once could not ask. The answer from Mr. Bolger, who broke into a smile, came loud and clear. As the chamber applauded, the deputy speaker, Rob Mitchell, made sure it would go down in history.
Full passage of the same-sex marriage bill, which has drawn widespread, cross-party support, would make history in Australia. The bill easily passed the Senate last Wednesday without amendment following a debate on whether it included enough religious freedom provisions. The bill gained momentum earlier this month after Australians voted decisively in a nonbinding referendum in favor of making same-sex marriage legal.
The measure is expected to pass its last test in a vote in the House of Representatives by the end of the week.
Mr. Wilson’s proposal also made history in another way. Officials from the House of Representatives noted on Twitter that he was also the first member of Parliament to ever propose in the chamber.
