Roscommon LGBT activist welcomes Australian vote

A Roscommon LGBT activist has warmly welcomed the results of the Australian vote on marriage equality which shows that almost 62% are in favour of changing legislation forbidding it.

Will Keane who was heavily involved in the Roscommon campaign during the referendum here in 2015 says he was delighted to see that so many people of all ages had voted on the issue.

He says the postal vote method used in Australia shows clearly that a large proportion of young and old voiced their opinion and showed a healthy democratic and inclusive result.
