London, June 19 (IANS) Pop star George Michael has congratulated the lawmakers in California for legalising gay marriage. Michael is openly gay and he performed in California the day same-sex unions were made legal. Michael, who was once arrested for lewd behaviour in a Beverly Hills public toilet, is happy that gays and lesbians can now be legally married, contactmusic.com reports.

He said: “It’s way overdue. It’s something that happened … almost without a whisper in England. Because this is a much more religious society, there are a huge number of people who want unions to be part of something that they can place in their religion.”
