Australian lawmakers smacked down a proposal to lift the ban on same-sex marriage in Australia back in September. This setback obviously doesn’t mean fuck-all to Australian Big Brother winner Benjamin Norris.
During the live broadcast of the finale on Australia’s Channel 9, Norris got down on bended knee and popped the question to his boyfriend Ben Williams. The audience went crazy, and 1.5 million Australian viewers got to see real love up close.
As of right now, Norris and Williams can only declare their love for each other in a civil union. Whoever’s in charge down there needs to take a look here in the US at Maryland, Maine, and Washington. Time for a change, Aussies.
