  1. A huge step forward in a country that can now be called retro. Congratulations and all the best to those who have married since the ACT law was enacted. Make the most of it because the reactionaries now in government on a Federal level are digging in on many fronts. And it does not bode well for the gay community or our fragile environment.

    Congratulations to all you wonderful Aussi’s who are pushing the legal boundaries. I so respect you and wish you well. I hope Thursdays High Court challenge fails and you and all other gay citizens can marry and be happy. This is about respect, happiness and human rights.

    Please Australia ratify ACT and people of Australia get Abbott out. This is about his views not a leaders views. A leaders views represents the electorate. He is not fit to lead a stunning country.

    I wish you all happiness and success for Marriage and Thursdays outcome.
