NZEALAND-POLITICS-GAY-MARRIAGE

Hundreds of people wait outside the parliament building in Wellington on April 17, 2013 for a place in the public gallery to see the chamber vote on a bill amending the 1955 Marriage Act to describe matrimony as a union of two people regardless of their sex, sexuality or how they choose to identify their gender. New Zealand's gay community was gearing up Wednesday to celebrate the country becoming the first in the Asia-Pacific to legalise same-sex marriage after a decades-long campaign for equality.
