Pressure for gay marriage in Australia builds “Momentum is building in Parliament for change following Ireland's successful referendum on the weekend. Mr Abbott has conceded he is the last person in his own family to still believe gay and lesbian couples should not be allowed to marry. New South Wales Liberal Democrat Senator David Leyonheljm has introduced a 'Freedom to Marry' bill in the Senate but is holding off on bringing on a vote until he can be guaranteed there is enough support in the Parliament.” (Also: It’s time for Labor to back gay marriage 100%)
