Music Stars Celebrate Australia's Equal Marriage Vote
Music stars from around the world are among millions celebrating Australia’s vote in favour of equal marriage rights.
In Tuesday’s non-binding vote, 61.6 per cent of 12.7 million people said “yes,” setting the stage for legal recognition of same-sex marriages in the country.
Canada has had equal marriage since 2005.
“Love is love, always was love, always will be love,” tweeted Australian pop star Kylie Minogue.
Here’s a sample of some of the celebrity reactions:
