As Australia celebrates a Yes vote in favour of marriage equality, local and international celebrities are taking to Twitter to express their delight with the victory.
From Boy George and Richard Branson, to Ian Thorpe and Ellen DeGeneres and many more, there were messages of congratulations.
Even Apple’s Tim Cook sent a congratulatory tweet — although failed in his first attempt after posting it featuring the New Zealand flag.

Now that we jeopardized the health and wellbeing of my community by subjecting them to hateful propaganda and stress can we move forward and just have equality. We are human beings. https://t.co/rP8kAYELSe
