US president Barack Obama, has come out and is supporting same sex marriage, it is people like Barack Obama who will help it become legalised in Australia.

Jay Taylor's comment, May 31, 2013 2:38 AM
This is an extreme but inspirational article as the US President Barack Obama has come to the conclusion that he wants to in force the law of legalising same sex attracted marriage in the USA. In the article it is expressed that Obama feels strongly about legalising the law.

Also.. the article has arguments why gay marriage should not be in forced with proper comments underneath stating why gay marriage should be in forced.

I scooped this song through spodify as it is a great example of same sex marriages. The song is called 'Same love' and it is about two of the same sex loving each other and that it is not accepted in our society. The song explains how loving someone the same sex is unacceptable and the trauma people go through for not being respected in society. The words “it’s all the same love," is said because we should support every kind of love. I believe this song is a great eye opener for people who are against same sex marriages.
Jay Taylor's comment, May 28, 2013 12:39 AM
I chose this source as I have heard this song on the radio before and think it has a really good message and moral. This article is 'for' legalising gay marriage and Macklemore was extremely smart making a song that could spread the word around the world.
Jesse Krasic's curator insight, May 30, 2013 6:41 AM

i chose to scoop this as it is a good awareness about same sex marriage, it is in song form, but everybody around the world will hear this song and be aware of it.

Should Australia hold a referendum on gay marriage?

Should Australia hold a referendum on gay marriage? | Should gay marriage be legal in Australia? | Scoop.it

Despite several Galaxy polls indicating that a majority of Australians support same-sex marriage – and it receiving the support of former prime minister Kevin Rudd – recent proposals for a referendum on the issue at the next election have not been greeted withmuch enthusiasm by members of the gay and lesbian community.

I scooped this article via Kristy Tyquin because i believe everything that is said in the article is true. It explains that everyone is the same, all our gay friends and family members still do the same daily activities as they would if they weren't gay. They pay the same amount of bills, taxes etc and they aren't effecting anyone around us so it's time to allow gay marriage in Australia. Marriage brings joy and we should not deny a person love. It could be that gay married couples can look after a child at the same standard as married couples, but gay couples are not given the chance to prove so.
Jay Taylor's comment, May 28, 2013 12:56 AM
I found that 'It's time to allow gay marriage in Australia' was an important article as it stated that our country needs to allow gay marriage because recently other countries have been. For example New Zealand has recently legalised gay marriage and it should be legalised in Australia being a neighbouring country.
Jesse Krasic's curator insight, May 30, 2013 6:43 AM

it is raising awareness for same sex marriage, and that is time for australia to allow same sex marriage, which is being allowed in most other countries now.

This article is extremely large and open as is gay marriage protesting in Paris. 150,000 people in Paris roamed the streets with pink and blue (anti-gay colours) banners. Others decided to throw beer bottles, smoke flares and metal barriers to express the hate they felt about France's new gay marriage law.

Jay Taylor's comment, May 30, 2013 9:44 PM
Throughout this article it provides us with information on allowing gay marriage. It shows us that more people want same sex marriage to be legalised. It is an excellent example of same sex marriage winning a possible election as 205 people voted for same sex marriage out of 366.
