YES! ๐ŸŒˆ Still celebrating this amazing day in Australian history. ๐Ÿ’œโœจ #australianmarriageequality #equality
I've been away from home now for over two weeks and I CANT WAIT to fly home tomorrow and see my ducky๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ @alexmcauley_ Here's a shot from the marriage equality short film we featured in together, Love is Love by Leela Vargheese.

On Parents and Paradoxes โ€œThen I guess itโ€™s a shame that we got thrown togetherโ€, I told them. It was 12:30am and weโ€™d been talking for over two hours. Just your typical parent-son conversation about sexuality and religion and disappointment. I donโ€™t believe in God and they voted no in the plebiscite. Enough said, right? And the general conclusion we came to after two hours of debating whether or not I was born gay; and whether or not I should be allowed to marry; and whether or not god exists โ€” was that our opinions are too solidified to be changed, and too different for us to be able to live together freely. The dynamic is no longer the same between us and I donโ€™t think it ever will be. There are things that a son should be able to talk to their parents about that I will never feel comfortable enough to bring into conversation. But I donโ€™t blame them. Theyโ€™re as much a product of their time as I am. Theyโ€™re not bad people, or homophobes or bigots. Theyโ€™re just people, like the rest of us. But the fact still remains: we cannot see eye to eye. Our opinions on religion and sexuality will never align, and this, I believe, is our paradox. The three of us have been thrown together in this life, accidentally connected by genetics, a random selection of cells, and now we have to live together while we fundamentally disagree with the people we are. And this is where the paradox lies. This is where we must live โ€” somewhere in the middle. Between agreement and disagreement, between love and indifference, between comfort and compromise. Because now I can only ever feel comfortable being a fraction of myself around them; existing somewhere in the middle. And that, I told them at 12:30am, is a damn fucking shame. โ€” the astronomer โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€”โ€” Quote by Tracy Letts, from the film โ€˜August: Osage Countyโ€™ #writersofinstagram #writer #write #blogger #blog #sonder #onsonder #parents #growingup #religion #sexuality #gay #lgbt #samesexmarriage #plebiscite #comingout

In celebration of Australia voting yes for Same sex marriage. โค๏ธ๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’œ I am so proud of Australia for banding together and supporting the LGBTIQ community ๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ We all personally have had to climb our own mountains. Whether that be dealing with discrimination or just finding acceptance, to know that the majority of Australia has our back is amazing and relieving tbh. #lgbt #plebiscite #ssm #equality #lovewins #pride #prideflag #mountains #glasshousemountains #gay #gaypride #australia #gayaustralia #๐Ÿณ๏ธโ€๐ŸŒˆ #samesexmarriage
What a fantastic moment and the epitome of โ€œicing on the cakeโ€ - sharing the #historical #YES outcome with the #queer sister (with her #fiancรฉ) of the man who devised this #awful #plebiscite #nonsense. #cheers to you @crchristineforster & @surryhillsgal. Was an absolute pleasure meeting and speaking with both of you xxx #lovewins #lgbtqi #australia #nov15 #marriageequality #community #loveislove #sydney
#lovewins We are so overjoyed that Australia voted overwhelmingly for equality, fairness and love! Fingers crossed the law gets changed before the festive season so we have even more reason to celebrate!

YES!!! ๐ŸŒˆ So very proud to be an Australian this week after the results were announced for the marriage equality rights survey. A massive 61% voted YES for equal marriage rights for LGBTQ people ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ. The people have spoken and now it is time for the government to listen and take action. LOVE is LOVE. ๐ŸŒˆ โค๏ธ ๐Ÿ’› ๐Ÿ’š ๐Ÿ’™ ๐Ÿ’œ ๐Ÿ’– ๐ŸŒˆ
Iโ€™m a bit late posting this but anyway, fingers crossed Australia! ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿฝ #plebiscite #auspol #pride #lgbtq #purple #ink #lovewins๐ŸŒˆ #marriageequality
ya girl sneaked into a @broadsheet_melb photo (sorry to the lovely person beside me who later offered me tissues) and also wrote about it for @ramonaforgirls! Check it out here or in my bio and tell me what u think https://ramonamag.com/2017/11/australia-says-yes/ #marriageequality #lovewins #samesexmarriage #gaymarriage #australianplebiscite #plebiscite #loveislove Also i need to add I've been thinking about it since I wrote this and while yes I am elated and wanted to celebrate the positives in this outcome and make space for other people to celebrate, I want to clarify that I recognise it's critical to remember that the world doesn't stop and human rights abuses were being committed in Australia's name literally as the result was being read out. I'm not sure I got that across as clearly as I would like - when I said "taking a minute" I meant a little longer than a single minute but not much more; maybe a couple of hours before my brain started ticking over again. We can be both happy and sad/mad and celebrate while being critical, we need to occupy that space to actually ever hope to achieve anything.
Australia has voted yes to same sex marriage after a nation-wide plebiscite resulted in 79.5% turnout, of which 61.6% voted in favour of legalizing same-sex marriage. It is now expected that a bill will be passed before Christmas.
