Australian singer Sam Sparro has married his American boyfriend Zion Lennox in Joshua Tree, California.

Posting a photo of the pair to Instagram this week, Lennox wrote: “So excited to be marrying the love of my life tomorrow @samsparro.”

Sparro is known for his 2008 song Black and Gold, announced he was getting married two weeks ago on Twitter.

The pair started dating around March 2015.

Gay marriage is legal in more than two dozen countries around the world, including in Australia, after a historic bill was passed in the House of Representatives at the end of 2017.

Finland, Malta and Germany also legalised same-sex marriage last year.

According to the Pew Research Center, the countries that allow gay marriage include: Argentina, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Denmark, England/Wales, Finland, France, Germany, Greenland, Iceland, Ireland, Luxembourg, Malta, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Scotland, South Africa, Spain, the US, Uruguay and Sweden.

Although same-sex marriage is legal in England, Wales and Scotland, it is not yet recognised in Northern Ireland.

In June, the Czech government backed a bill to allow same-sex marriage, but Romania has moved closer to banning gay marriage.

This week, Romanian senators voted in favour of a measure that could be used to change the country’s constitution so that marriage is defined as being between a man and a woman.

The vote has been announced for 6-7 October.

Romania’s other parliament chamber voted in support of the same measure last year.

Social Democrats leader Liviu Dragnea is pushing forward with the referendum after three million people signed a petition which called for the constitution to define marriage as between a man and a woman.
