77-44 Marriage Equality is here, and the sun rose this morning [VIDEOS]

Last night New Zealand became the 13th country in the world to legalise same-sex marriage.

A bill to legalise same-sex marriage has passed into law after its third reading in Parliament tonight, after months of emotional debate, parliamentary submissions, and passionate protests from people on either side of the issue.

New Zealand has become the 13th country in the world to enshrine marriage equality in law.

I am proud to have played my part in the passing of this bill into law. Here are some of the speeches from my friends made last night.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story.  And when he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet.   Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet, and as a result he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him.  But you can’t ignore him.
