The legalisation of same-sex marriage is officially coming to the ACT. Marriage equality was announced by Shane Rattenbury on the 2nd of November as part of the Parliamentary Agreement between ACT Labor and the Greens.
In his press conference he said, “we have agreed we will legislate for marriage equality in the ACT in light of the failure of the Federal Parliament to pass marriage equality laws at a national level.”
The deal is not surprising considering both the Greens and ACT Labor have actively been trying to introduce marriage equality legislation in recent years and both parties made legalising same-sex marriage part of their campaign.
