By On Top Magazine Staff Published: April 18, 2013
An Australian senator is expected to propose legislation which would recognize the international marriages of gay and lesbian couples.
Greens Senator Sarah Hanson-Young said she would introduce the bill next month.
The move comes a day after nearby New Zealand approved a gay marriage bill.
“Australia same-sex couples are now lining up to get married in New Zealand and the sad thing is they are not going to be recognized here,” Hanson-Young told ABC News 24. “They shouldn’t have to leave their marriage at the customs gate. Let’s recognize overseas marriage here in Australia.”
