They broke into song.

Yes, yes we did! :D There was singing and tears and joy and relief that it's finally over. It was an amazing moment. <3

It's something of a bittersweet victory though, because like Ireland, we had to go through a public vote ahem, non-compulsory, non-binding postal survey to get there, and that unleashed a lot of unasked-for pain and suffering for our communities. And there was no leadership from our PM on this to bring the country towards marriage equality (which he supports). And we didn't know which Bill we were even voting on until the survey was over. But oh gods am I glad it's done, and now we can move on.

CONGRATS, Sobekemiti!!!!

Finally, the English-speaking world now says it with one voice: YES to Equality! Love Is Love!
The first song sets the wheel in motion / The second is a song of love / The third song tells of Her devotion / The fourth cries joy from the sky above
The fifth song binds our fate to silence / and bids us live each moment well / The sixth unleashes rage and violence / The seventh song has truth to tell
The last song echoes through the ages / to ask its question all night long / And close the circle on these pages / These, the metamythos songs

I freely admit I sighed a great sigh of relief when I first heard the reports.  It's so about time~!
