New Zealand is a small nation in the South Pacific. It's population of four and a half million are multicultural. In 1986, New Zealand passed the Homosexual Law Reform followed in 2005 with the Civil Union Bill. Now in 2013, the people have legalised Same Sex Marriage and the Parliament tonight passed the Marriage (Definition of Marriage) Amendment Bill. The Ayes were 77 and the Noes were 44 and New Zealand proudly becomes the 13th country in the world to sanction gay marriage. If we can do this in our little piece of paradise, other countries should follow our lead. The time has come to overcome homophobia and bigotry and live together in a new age. KGB.
