The Aussie pop princess and her boyfriend, Joshua, have just done something that will totally and forever endear them to us…
They’re not going to tie the knot until same-sex couples get to say “I Do” down under.
Surprisingly same-sex marriage is not yet permitted in Austrailia and they’re not happy about it.
Kylie’s husband-to-be, Joshua Sasses, 28 helped launch the equality campaign, “Yes” and the “Say I Do Down Under” and said even though the pair would like to get married in Melbourne they won’t until the laws change to allow gay couples to get civilly partnered.
Speaking to Australia’s Seven Network Joshua said,
“When I found out that gay marriage was illegal in Australia, I was astounded,”
“..we will not get married until this law has passed in Australia”.
The Australian government has proposed a public referendum on the issue in February 2017.
“I simply can’t fathom on any level, whether it’s moral or religious or anything, that I have the right to get married and to marry the person that I love and that somebody else doesn’t because of their sexual orientation.”
Despite being seen as progressive Austrailia’s laws affecting LGBTs are quite regressive. There’s no same-sex marriage and there are no adoption rights in some territories. The age of consent was only recently equalised in Queensland.
