Don't know what to say? Let this video inspire you:
The Australian Capital Territory parliament passed a bill in October 2013 that made the territory the first part of Australia to legalize marriage equality. In Canberra, 31 couples were married over a five-day period once the law went into effect, from December 7-12, 2013.
But the national government challenged the decision, saying it was inconsistent with Australian federal laws. And Australia's High Court overturned the legislation making all the couples' unions invalid.
It's now the one-year anniversary for these couples, time to remind them that we recognize their marriages and celebrate their anniversary.
What happens next?
In honor of the couple's paper anniversaries, thousands of the most moving messages will be transcribed into letter-pressed cards and sent to the couples. Smudge Ink has kindly created custom cards and donated them in support of #5DaysofEquality.
#5DaysOfEquality is a part of the GLAAD Global Voices program, which aims to build support for LGBT equality across the globe by sharing culture-changing stories of LGBT people and families in American and international media.
