Australian basketballer and 2008 Olympian Tully Bevilaqua has pledged her support for the legalisation of gay marriage, saying she wants to wed her female partner in May in her current home, the US state of Indiana.
Bevilaqua applauded British MPs for last week’s vote in favour of gay marriage in an interview with The West Australian.
“In our eyes, we’re getting married,” Bevilaqua told the newspaper.
“We’re law-abiding citizens… and it’s so hard not to get equal billing even for simple things like being able to file our tax together.”
Lindsay has taken Bevilaqua’s surname and the couple has a son via anonymous sperm donor.
