Congratulations Mr & Mr Hayes

After years of avoiding the question, ex-Savage Garden lead singer Darren Hayes not only comes out of the closet but marries his boyfriend Richard. Congratulations on the marriage boys, and congratulations on singing it loud and proud Darren. As far as I can tell nobody was all that surprised, but kudos to him for standing up and stating it.

It sucks that they had to get married in the UK though, c'mon Australia it's time to treat all your citizens with the same degree of respect.

now we can all get some sleep ;)

and well, you know there won't be anything done with gay marriage while Howard's in government. what are you thinking TOA? respect... isn't that a four letter word?

I know, it was no big surprise... but it's still good that he said it rather than have some tabloid make a fuss. Sure he's not a No 1 chart topper anymore, but it's still good for him, and nice for his husband, to be open and proud of his relationship.

If respect is a 4 letter word, a nasty 4 letter word, then John Howard deserves more respect.
