Love is in the Australian Air!
On Monday, Tom Wilson, one of Australia’s openly gay members of Parliament, proposed to his partner, Ryan Bolger, during a speech on the floor of the House of Representatives. Wilson popped the question during a debate over same-sex marriage, a fresh topic in Australian politics after a referendum and a bill legalizing same-sex marriage was passed in the Senate last week. The House of Representatives is also expected to pass the bill soon. Congratulations are in order for Wilson and his partner, who have officially become the first couple engaged on the floor of the House.
