US SUPREME COURT DECISION

We welcome the historic decision of the US Supreme Court.

A nation dedicated to the equality of all, has upheld that truth today.

We congratulate the LGBTI couples of the United States, to whom this victory, this legal recognition of their love, means the most.

This is a joyous day in America. In Australia, let us make it a call to action.

It's time to make marriage equality, a reality.
