New Zealand joins the rest of the Progressive World with its Marriage Equality Law

If you haven’t heard already, New Zealand’s Parliament had recently legalized same-sex marriage in a 77-44 vote. This means, same-sex married couples will have the same rights and benefits like any other hetrosexual married couple in the country.

Equality truimphs and Strangers break out into a traditional Maori love song.

Congratulations New Zealand!

Bonus:
Meet MP Maurice Williamson and his hilarious speech a day after the bill was passed.
