Bindi Irwin tweets support for gay marriage in Australia
UPI News Service, 09/25/2017
Bindi Irwin took to Twitter Saturday to weigh in on the gay marriage debate in her native Australia.
"Should the law be changed to allow same-sex couples to marry?" the wildlife conservationist and reality television personality tweeted.
"Love is love. Yes, Australia."
The 19-year-old is seen in a photo smiling and holding up a ballot with the "yes" box checked. The tweet also includes rainbow and heart emojis.
CNN said Australia's High Court recently decided a national postal vote on same-sex marriage should go ahead, with ballots mailed out to households across the continent, starting Sept. 12 as part of a two-month process.
Bindi is the daughter of The Crocodile Hunter stars Terri and Steve Irwin.
Steve died in 2006 when a stingray barb pierced his chest. He was 44.
