VIDEO: Australian couples read your #5DaysOfEquality messages

Thanks to all of you who wished a happy anniversary to 31 Australian couples who were married one year ago, but had their marriages revoked.

From December 7-12, 2013, Australia began granting marriage licenses to same-sex couples, for the first time. Thirty-one couples were married before the Australian government stopped the licenses. The Australian High Court later invalidated all these marriages.

But just last week, the world showed these couples that they recognized their marriages. Using the hashtag #5DaysOfEquality, people posted on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, and Vine. Participants included George Takei, Jennifer Knapp, Omar Sharif Jr., and GLAAD president Sarah Kate Ellis.

And because the one year anniversary is the "paper anniversary," these tweets and posts were made into custom-made cards donated by Smudge Ink. The cards were shared with the couples at a party in Canberra, Australia. It was an anniversary party that celebrated their love, and shared these messages of support from around the world.
