Want even more reason to love South Australia today? Here it is: it is officially legal for same-sex couples to adopt a child in SA.
Yes! SA, you bloody beauty!
This fine state of ours has seemingly moved mountains for the LGBTQI+ community within the last twelve months – including the Rainbow Walk in Adelaide’s CBD, SA formally recognising same-sex marriage, and making the legal change of the gender on your birth certificate easier.
Furthermore, on Wednesday night, the SA Greens called for marriage equality in state parliament. This movement was supported by Labour, Liberal, and Independent MLC’s, which led to the South Australian Legislative Council passing a motion calling for marriage equality!
Our state government have really stood up and shown up when it comes to our community and our rights. And it’s nothing short of heavenly.
Having a whole state backing marriage equality is huge step forward – and legalising the adoption of children by same-sex couples – and hopefully it won’t be long until Federal Government finally changes things!
Remember that protesting and putting pressure on politicians does change things. So keep fighting the good fight!
