Alice and Lane take you inside the celebrations and negotiations of an historic week in Australia, where 61.6% of the country voted YES to legalising same-sex marriage. We’re joined by three of the politicians who have been at the forefront of the debate both politically and personally: Liberal senator Dean Smith popped in to talk about what is was like to introduce the bill that's set to legalise same-sex marriage in Australia, Labor senator Penny Wong talks about THAT PHOTO of her crying when she heard the news, and Greens senator Janet Rice tells Lane how much this result means for her. Lane also spoke to Christine Forster at the YES party in Sydney… just after she had gotten off the phone with her big brother, Tony Abbott.
