Luke and George, the couple in Melbourne who prepared to celebrate gay marriage in Australia by wearing matching gorgeous floor-length wedding gowns!
My crack pipe dream of getting legally married to a long-lost gay Hemsworth brother (there has to be one) by Queen Gina from Real Housewives of Melbourne in front of my groomsmen (a bunch of shirtless Aussie firefighters holding koala bouquets) at the mall from Kath & Kim is one step closer to coming true! More than 12 million Aussies voted on legalizing marriage for everyone yesterday, and 61.6% voted YES, while 38.4% made the gay angels cry by voting NO. May a kangaroo shit on that 38.4%’s lawn every day until the end of times, and may they always find the Vegemite section of their grocery store empty!
A change needs to be made to Australia’s Marriage Act before everyone in the country can legally add a ball and chain (aka a spouse) to their ankles. There’s going to be fight from the NO wrecks, but Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull believes it’ll happen by Christmas.
Many Australians gathered together to wait for the results, and Tom Cowie, a writer for The Age, tweeted a picture of Luke and George filling up with nervousness while waiting to see if they’ll legally be able to get married in matching gowns. Never mind that the bottom part looks like it’s made of toilet paper flowers, that neckline is doing very good things for both of them. Thank all the gods that the Yes vote won, because there’s really nothing sadder than a gay couple in wedding dresses frowning because they can’t get married. Just thinking of that made my dead heart come back to life, feel sadness and then die again.
And here’s today’s HSOTD honorable mention:
