Australia’s first openly gay High Court judge, Michael Kirby, will marry his partner on the 50th anniversary of the day they met. Kirby revealed plans to marry Johan van Vloten during a speech to students at Bond University. The 79-year-old served as a High Court judge from 1996-2009 and has since been a vocal human rights advocate, especially on LGBTI rights. He did consider marrying his partner after Australia legalized same-sex marriage in December last year, but thought it might be too late for them.
