Last night New Zealand’s Parliament passed legislation legalizing gay marriage. This video shows what happened next. The entire Parliament and spectators burst into song, singing “Pokarekare Ana,” a love song in the language of New Zealand’s inidgenous Maori people. The woman in the video wearing the rainbow shirt is Louisa Wall, a lesbian lawmaker who sponsored the legislation.Can you imagine the U.S. Congress breaking into song about anything, much less the passage of legislation to give people long-deserved equal rights? Always thought New Zealand was a beautiful country.
Watch the video HERE:It will make you feel good.
