Celebs celebrate Australia gay marriage result

Members of Sydney's gay community react as they celebrate after it was announced the majority of Australians support same-sex marriage in a national survey, paving the way for legislation to make the country the 26th nation to formalise the unions by the end of the year, at a pub located on Sydney's Oxford street, Australia, November 15, 2017.

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

Nearly 80 percent of the Australian population participated in the voluntary postal survey, which asked, "Should the law be changed to allow same-sex couples to marry?"

Senator Smith, himself both a gay man and a Christian, told the chamber he understood the concerns of religious Australians who objected to same-sex marriage.

Thousands of people in a Sydney park broke into a loud cheer, hugged and cried as Australia's chief statistician revealed live over a big screen that 61.6 percent of voters surveyed favoured marriage equality, with 38.4 percent against. Around three-quarters of the electorate - more than 12.6 million people - took part.

The bill will need the approval of both the Senate and the House of Representatives before it passes into law.

Turnbull played down concern of a split in his coalition government over the policy as the conservative faction presses for amendments to protect religious freedoms that discriminate against same-sex couples.

This morning's result was a historic accomplishment for proponents of marriage equality after more than a decade of political wrangling and two months of voting, which highlighted deep divisions in Australian society over the issue.

Even before the ballot papers were sent out in September, the debate turned toxic with a poster emblazoned "stop the fags" put up in central Melbourne and flyers describing homosexuality as "a curse of death" distributed in suburban Sydney.

'I look forward to the Yes campaign.to honour their commitment that there would be no negative consequences and to fight to keep the freedoms of Australian people.

She has said the result will be a new hope for marriage equality campaigners, and called on Northern Ireland to be the next to vote in favour of marriage equality.
