Australians started voting on marriage equality for same sex couples at the beginning of September, via postal survey. The votes are going to keep rolling in and being counted until late October, with the results to be revealed in mid-November. The results are not legally binding, but if the majority of voters say "yes" to marriage equality, Parliament will be able to introduce legislation for a "free vote" in which politicians may vote according to their conscience rather than party lines. That would be good, because it seems tentatively like in such a case, marriage equality would pass. People's attitudes towards the LGBTQ community have shifted significantly in Australia over the last decade.
