ACT gay marriage law overturned
Australia's High Court has overturned legislation allowing gay marriage in the Australian Capital Territory (ACT).
The ACT parliament passed a bill in October making the territory the first part of Australia to legalise same-sex weddings.
But the national government challenged the decision, saying it was inconsistent with federal laws.
Judy Brown, president of Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays in Australia told the BBC activists are already working on federal legislation.
