This past Wednesday, New Zealand's Parliament voted to legalize same-sex marriage, with a vote of 77 to 44 in favor.   As NZ's lawmakers finalized the vote, a crowd  filled the public galleries above the floor and burst into song, serenading the same-sex bill's sponsor, lesbian MP Louisa Wall.

The Associated Press reports the song was "Pokarekare Ana," a love song in the country's indigenous Maori language.

Take note, this is what equality sounds like. - Towleroad.

I hope Lawmaker's in the USA are listening.
