Ellen DeGenereshas spoken out in support of marriage equality in Australia in a very romantic way.
TheAustralian Bureau of Statisticsbegan sending out ballots for the legalization of same-sex marriage last week.
The ballots, which are non-binding, cannot change the current law, which does not recognize same-sex marriage. But based on the results,they could leadto a vote to change the law in Parliament.
On Sunday, DeGenereswent on Twitterand urged her 73.5 million followers to “vote yes” for marriage equality with a photo of her wife, actress Portia de Rossi, who is Australian.
“I appreciate my wife every day,” the comedian wrote in the post. “I can’t imagine calling her anything else.”
