Australia has officially said ‘yes’ to marriage equality.
On Tuesday, a majority of Australians voted in favor of same-sex marriage, with 61.6 percent of the 12.7 million participants voting yes. The result of the non-binding survey paves the way for Parliament to legally recognize the union of same-sex couples.
Celebrities from all over the world celebrated the news on social media, with Ellen DeGeneres, James Corden, Sia, Zach Braff, and Debra Messing among those weighing in.
