As the fight for marriage equality worldwide continues, celebrities and activists are calling on countries to “open their minds” so to speak.

Currently, Australia’s battle for marriage equality is causing quite a stir amongst the LGBT+ community worldwide.

In response to the impending decision, Ellen DeGeneres wanted to let the world know how important marriage equality is by paying a thoughtful tribute to her wife, Portia de Rossi, who happens to be Australian.

“I appreciate my wife every day,” DeGeneres said in a tweet. “I can’t imagine calling her anything else. #WifeAppreciationDay #AustraliaMarriageEquality #VoteYes”

In addition to this tweet, DeGeneres has advocated on behalf of LGBT+ individuals in Australia via social media in the past. 

Voting will continue in Australia until November 7th and results will be released November 15th.
