Australia’s first legal same-sex wedding takes place in Sydney

Lauren Price, 31, and her partner Amy Laker, 29, made history on Saturday by tying the knot in front of 65 guests in Sydney, Australia. 

They were the first gay couple to be legally married in Australia, after a federal law legalizing same-sex marriage on December 9, 2017. 

The couple had initially planned on having a civil union, but was granted an exemption to the 30-day notice period to make their union legally binding under the new laws on financial grounds, as Price’s family had already traveled from Wales to Australia for this weekend’s ceremony.

PRIDE SWIMSUITS LAUNCHED ON NERDYKEPPIE!

What? I know! I did the research and I found that I was ethically able to order these swimsuits. They’re the only all-over printed items I carry which aren’t printed in the United States, but I talked with the manufacturer for a while to assure that I wasn’t supporting sweatshop labor. So! I’m able to (as ethically as I can) offer these kick-ass suits! And the best part?

FREE SHIPPING (YES, EVEN INTERNATIONALLY) FOR THE WHOLE MONTH OF JUNE! FREE. $0.00! YES, REALLY!

Hey, do you have swim trunks?

No, not yet! But I’m working on that. I’m in communication with my printing company. I know! You want them! I want them too! As soon as I get them, they will be posted SUPER FAST.

What about [insert flag here]? How come you didn’t post that?

I posted the flags which most commonly sell in my pride flag items. But have no fear! If you’d like to purchase your flag on a swimsuit and I don’t have it posted, contact me and I’ll be happy to make sure that you can purchase it ASAP! As a poverty-line artist, I can’t afford to put up every variation of every flag – it actively costs me money to keep open listings that don’t sell, so I handle less-frequently-ordered flags on a per-request basis. That way everyone can get the suits they want and I can afford to pay my mortgage. 

I need it by [time], can you rush shipping if I pay for it?

No. :( I don’t have control over that. The average print time is 2-3 days at my print provider & shipping is 5-10 days after that since they’re coming from overseas. I cannot guarantee an arrival date, so order quick if you want them by a certain date! 

Okay, awesome! Where can I buy these suits? 


You can get them on NerdyKeppie, along with a bunch of other bomb-ass stuff. 

(Please note that free shipping ONLY applies to the suits – if you pick up other stuff, and it would be rad if you did, you’ll be charged for shipping for the additional items only.)
