Are there many people from the commonwealth here? Are the games popular in your country? Also, I know most of the countries in the commonwealth have laws against homosexuality and there were two men kissing in the opening ceremony, so I'm curious if that's being talked about in these countries and had a negative response?
They're definitely popular here. They're (almost) like a second Olympics.
I hadn't heard about that at all actually, but I'm sure it wouldn't be considered an issue at all in Australia. lthough gay marriage here is not yet legal, de Facto unions are legally recognised and homosexuality is generally accepted here. In my opinion it's inevitible that gay mardiage will be legal here in the very near future.
