Hundreds of Sydneysiders gathered in Prince Alfred Park in Surry Hills on Wednesday to hear the result of the same-sex marriage postal survey.
When the Yes announcement came through shortly after 10am, the crowd went wild dancing, hugging and crying with joy.
Business Insider was on the ground to capture the moment. Here are some photos from Sydney as the Yes result was announced.
The anticipation was building
Rainbow flags were flying high …
… and being worn as capes …

The crowd cheered
It’s a great result for the LGBTQI community, equality, and for the almost 8 million Australians who voted yes.
