Longtime readers of Towleroad may recall that back in 2007 an Australian Idol contestant named Anthony Callea made a splash when he came out of the closet. Callea's disclosure was followed soon after with an identical one from Australian actor and singer Tim Campbell.

Campbell and Callea met during an Australian  production of Rent, and shortly thereafter announced that they were together.

Yesterday Callea said that after seven years he and Campbell have married.

Wrote Callea on Instagram:

It's extra special today as @timcampbelltwit and I get to share the news we are married! There's a whole bunch of photos and what went on over 2 days of celebrations in this weeks Woman's Day! Yep....he liked it and definitely put a ring on it! Tune in to both Kyle & Jackie O and Jonesy & Amanda as Tim and I will be joining them on air shortly!

Woman's Day reports:

The loved-up couple, who surprised everyone when they announced they were getting married, travelled to New Zealand, where same-sex marriage is recognised, and vowed to spend the rest of their lives together in front of their parents (Cosmo and Santina Callea and Graham and Heather Campbell) and best friends – Rob and Annie Cipressi.

Following on from the intimate and simple affair, the newlyweds flew back home to Melbourne to host a dinner party for their nearest and dearest.

Australia, of course, does not yet have marriage equality.

Congrats.

Meet Dan and Miki, the Gay Cowboy Couple Who are Living Their Dream: VIDEO

Cowboys

Dan and Miki are a gay cowboy couple living in ranching in North Queensland, Australia recently profiled by that country's SBS2 network.

3_cowboysDan lived in the city for a while trying to conform to the stereotype of what he thought a gay person was. Miki met Dan on a trip to see the country, and after getting to know one another, settled down on their farm.

The couple wakes up before sunrise to roosters, kookaburras, and curtains of mist. They feed the chickens, cows, and horses,  protect their animals from heavy storms that come over the mountains, and often find themselves covered in animal sh-t at the end of the day. And like every other couple, they bicker, fight, and make up.

It's pretty much everything that Jack Twist wanted with Ennis del Mar, but this time nobody had to quit anyone.

Check out their beautiful, bucolic story, AFTER THE JUMP...

Honey Boo Boo's Uncle Poodle Engaged to Boyfriend

Poodle

Lee Thompson (aka Honey Boo Boo's Uncle Poodle) is engaged to his boyfriend Alan, he announced on Twitter and Facebook last week.

Tweeted Thompson along with the above pic:

"To answer questions about this pic YES! Alan and I fact Engaged! I proposed to him this past weekend and he said YES!"

Since becoming well-known on his precocious niece's reality show, Thompson has spoken out for gay rights and against bullying and also came out as HIV-positive.

Said Thompson, who has been married to a man at least once before, in 2012:

"I’m gay, but I’m as redneck as I can get. If you want people to accept you, you have to show you don’t have a problem with yourself and just be up front about who you are. If you do, you earn people’s respect. If everybody would just go on and do that, ignorant people couldn’t cause so many problems. I know this is how I was born and I don’t need to explain it to anybody. I live my life for who I am. That’s why ‘Born This Way’ is gonna be my next tattoo."

Thompson spread the news on the same day that Honey Boo Boo's Mama June and Sugar Bear announced their decision to split.

I'm tired of telling everyone we haven't done anything yet!' [Bass] said."
