Lez Dish It Out! AfterEllen’s Weekly Les/Bi Round-Up

on

Hello to my lady loving women, and TGIF, am I right? I hope you all had a fabulous week as we approach the end of the year chaos that is the holiday season. Today we have Australia says YES, Ellen Page speaks out, and another Tegan and Sara video among other news, so lez get started!

Australia says YES!

The Sydney Opera House even went full rainbow for this historic day.

After two months of mail-in voting, results were calculated and the people of Australia have delivered a verdict overwhelmingly in favor of legalizing same sex marriage. Wednesday’s results revealed 61% voted in support of marriage equality, and 38% voted against. Nearly 80% of the country’s population participated in the vote, making it an accurate representation of Australia and its citizens’ feelings toward the issue.

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull provided some commentary following the announcement of the results, saying that it’s now up to Parliament to make the passage of marriage equality official before Christmas.

Needless to say, the LGBT community as a whole is pretty thrilled. Check out these tweets from Ellen and Portia, the latter of whom is a proud Aussie herself.

Cheers to equality in Australia, and to lots of New Years weddings!
