Australian comedian Hannah Gadsby has revealed she and her partner Jenney Shamash were married earlier this year and thanked people who voted for marriage equality.
Gadsby, 43, shot to fame in 2018 with her Netflix special Nanette in which she discussed sexual trauma, and for which she won an Emmy award and a Peabody Award.
She followed it up with her 2019 special Douglas in which she spoke about her autism diagnosis and how it affects her life.
Sharing a photo of herself and Shamash eating ice cream, she wrote on Instagram: "I would like to introduce all y'all to Jenney Shamash. She is a producer extraordinaire.
"She is very funny and is really talented at reciting facts. It is a joy to behold.
"We got married in January and we are very chuffed about it.
"For the record: this is me gushing. I am full of very positive feelings. This is a nice story.
"My heartfelt thanks to everybody who voted for marriage equality."
Australia introduced laws to recognise same-sex marriage in 2017.
Writing in Vanity Fair earlier this month, Gadsby said she only wore blue clothes, for their calming effect.
"It has been an unfortunate fact my entire life that the way I look makes many people angry and compels even more people to openly mock and deride my appearance.
"When I was a young woman this wounded me greatly and I assumed the pain I felt would be a permanent fixture of my life. But with age and other unfolding maturations I am now able to comfortably live in the chosen comfort cocoon I call my clothes."
