Same-sex couples can now legally adopt children in South Australia, thanks to a law passed last year.

Pink News writes:

A bill to allow the change was passed, one of several to improve the lives of LGBT+ people in the state.

The day will be marked by Child Development Minister Susan Close, who will meet with same-sex couples and their children at Parliament House.

Following a narrow parliamentary vote, the Australian territory of Queensland also last year voted to allow same-sex couples to adopt children.

Same-sex adoption rights and marriage rights are left up to the states or territories in Australia. Currently, same-sex adoption is still forbidden in the Northern Territory. And same-sex marriage is still banned nationwide.
