In a huge win for gay rights in Australia, Shouts of celebration were heard across the nation on Wednesday last week after the results of a two-month postal survey came out in favor of legalizing same-sex marriage.

This is a huge, happy win for the LGBT community in Australia.

Hundreds gathered to hear the announcement, which was met with rainbow smoke, dancing and tears of joy.

Almost 80% of the population – more than 12.7 million people – participated in the survey, which began on September 12th and closed on November 7th. The results were overwhelmingly positive: 61% of the population voted for the legalization, while only 38% voted against it.

Circle Surrogacy is the leading surrogacy agency in the United States for gay couples and individuals. Circle has been helping LGBTQ+ couples and individuals from around the world become parents since 1995.
