Australian parliament bursts into song to celebrate LGBT marriage


Last month, the Australian public have voted to legalise same-sex marriage.

The move meant that the country's parliament could formally begin the process of legislating for the union.

The results of the parliaments' vote was overwhelmingly in favour of same-sex marriage, and in celebration, the entire room burst into song. 

Australian MPs endorsed marriage equality and broke into a round of applause, cheers, and began singing. 

The officials sang  I Am Australian by The Seekers, and one or two could be seen wiping away tears of joy after the announcement.

Only four MPs did not back the reform.

Their delighted reaction is currently going viral, as the world looked on anticipating their decision. 

From this Saturday onwards, same-sex couples will be able to register to get married in Australia.

'What a day for love, for equality, for respect. Australia has done it,' Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull said, according to Sky News.
