Australia Delays Irrelevant Marriage Equality Vote For Another Year
The battle for marriage equality rages on — and in one of the most frustrating bits of news, the Australian Prime Minister has announced that the public vote for same-sex marriage has been delayed until next year. What’s worse? Whatever the results, politicians aren’t bound by the vote. Besides — allowing the majority to vote on the rights of the minority population? Historically not the best idea. SO MUCH UGH.
All that and more in our monthly look at same-sex marriage and marriage equality from around the world!
