LGBT activists across Australia were celebrating Wednesday, as 61 % of this population voted and only enabling same-sex couples to wed in a advisory referendum.
Whilst the referendum will not immediately make same-sex marriage appropriate, it will likely be utilized in Parliament as a persuasive argument in favor of quick legalization.
Presuming lawmakers do not disregard the outcome, Australia would be the 26th nation on earth to legalize same-sex wedding.
