Today is a day LGBTQ Australians will never forget.

After an eight-week plebiscite and more than 12.7 million votes cast, Australia have voted Yes to legalise same-sex marriage.

The results of the postal vote saw 61.6% of the Australians who took part pledge their support to Marriage Equality.

 

Naturally, celebrations of the result played out on social media, with many famous faces sharing their joy on hearing the news.

From Kylie Minogue and Sia, to Danni Minogue and Troye Sivan, we’ve rounded up a selection of the reactions below.

A bill to change the law around marriage in Australia was introduced into the Senate on Wednesday, and will now be debated for any further amendments.

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has confirmed plans for his government to try and pass the amended Marriage Act by Christmas.

“[Australians] have spoken in their millions and they have voted overwhelmingly yes for marriage equality,” Turnbull said after the result was revealed.

“They voted yes for fairness, yes for commitment, yes for love.”
