Australian Labor Party Prime Minister candidate Kevin Rudd has trounced anti-gay Bush lackey John Howard. Howard lost so badly, he no longer even has a seat in Parliament. Rudd’s historic win means that Labor now runs the government in every Australian state and territory. Also for the first time, a woman, Julia Gillard, holds the second-highest office in the country.
Howard supported Bush in the invasion of Iraq and has a long history of opposing same-sex marriage. His campaigns frequently used gay marriage as a wedge issue.
Congratulations to our LGBT friends in Australia. Big changes are comin’ down under!
