WARRNAMBOOL Art Gallery hosted a small group of people who came together to listen to the same sex marriage vote result on Wednesday morning. 

Curator of exhibitions and outreach Ren Gregoric said about 10 people listened to proceedings on Melbourne gay and lesbian radio station Joy 94.9.

“Everyone came in together and they were really looking after each other,” he said.

“I think people were nervous, but they were very happy there was a yes outcome. There was a really positive vibe.”

Mr Gregoric said there was an outpouring of gratitude from the group, who thanked the community for supporting the yes vote.

“People are not quite sure what is next,” he said.

“There was a social media build up that the outcome would be around 80 per cent voting yes. I think people were thinking it would be higher than what it was.”

He said it was important that people continued to look after each other in the community.

“Remember to keep being positive as we continue on the journey to getting marriage equality,” he said.
