Thousands rally in Australia for same-sex marriage

MELBOURNE - Thousands of Australians marched at same-sex marriage rallies across the country on Saturday calling on whichever party wins a July 2 national election to quickly introduce same-sex marriage laws.
Conservative Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull supports same-sex marriage and has pledged a public vote on the issue before the end of 2016.
The Labor opposition will skip a public vote and introduce a bill to parliament within 100 days if it wins the election.
Opinion polls say Turnbull's conservative coalition and Labor are neck-and-neck ahead of the election.
