The 15th November 2017 was a day that the world got a little fairer. Australia voted overwhelmingly in favour of legalising same-sex marriage. 61.6% of people voted in favour of allowing same-sex couples marry. Australian Prime Minister, Malcolm Turnbull said that his government would aim to pass the legislation in parliament by Christmas.

In my book, love is love. I believe that we can’t choose who we fall in love with. Some people just happen to be gay. So what? Who are we to stop someone from showing their love for someone officially?

What happened in Australia on Wednesday 15th November 2017 will go down in history. It sends a strong message to the world. It shows that society is becoming a better place. A place that in the future will become even more equal for everyone.

Congratulations, Australia! Love is love and love wins!
