A bill to change the law around marriage in Australia was introduced into the Senate on Wednesday, and will now be debated for any further amendments.
Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has confirmed plans for his government to try and pass the amended Marriage Act by Christmas.
“[Australians] have spoken in their millions and they have voted overwhelmingly yes for marriage equality,” Turnbull said after the result was revealed.
“They voted yes for fairness, yes for commitment, yes for love.”
