After months of anticipation, the results of the same-sex marriage postal survey are in - and Australia has voted Yes to marriage equality.

As of 10:00am AEDT on Wednesday, 61 percent of Australians voted Yes, giving the Turnbull government the green light to move forward with the rest of the world and allow same-sex couples to marry.

More than 12 million Australians took part in the voluntary postal vote.

Celebrities have been vocal at every step of the way, and now that the result is finally here, stars like David Campbell, Sylvia Jeffreys, and Ian Thorpe have taken to social media to celebrate the historic decision.

And even before the results of the Federal Government's controversial postal vote were in, many celebs used their platforms to express their hope for a Yes victory.

"Here's hoping that at 10am I only have to be embarrassed about our politicians and not about my entire country," radio star and comedian Andy Lee tweeted.

While TODAY's Sylvia Jeffreys wrote, "My fingers firmly crossed for a better, more inclusive Australia."

"No matter what, you are loved, you are accepted, we are equal," Georgia Love tweeted.
