'Tomorrow we legislate' SSM: Shorten

November 15, 2017

Bill Shorten tells the crowd in Melbourne "today we celebrate, tomorrow we legislate".

Federal Opposition Leader Bill Shorten has told thousands of happy same-sex marriage supporters they should be able to get married in December.

"Yes, yes, yes", Mr Shorten screamed to the crowd gathered to hear the result of the same-sex marriage survey in Melbourne on Wednesday.

"It may have been 61 per cent who voted yes in the survey, but I want to say to all LGBTIQ Australians you are 100 per cent loved, 100 per cent valued, and after the next two weeks of parliament, 100 per cent able to marry the person that you love.

"Today we celebrate, tomorrow we legislate."
