Australia Post has unveiled two commemorative stamps to mark the passage of marriage equality nearly two years ago. The majority “yes” vote for same-sex was announced on November 15, 2017. The same-sex marriage bill finally passed through the Australian parliament that December. The two stamps, released by Australia Post on October 1, both celebrate the reform, with one depicting a rainbow with the phrase “Love is love”. The other features two couples – Bec and Paula from Melbourne; and David and Nick from Sydney – as they celebrated the “yes” vote announcement that day. Australia Post Executive General Manager Gary Starr said the two stamps recognise a “significant moment” in Australia’s history.
