Sam Smith Met Magda Szubanski, And It Was Beautiful


Sam Smith has said he was “honoured” to meet Australian comedian and marriage equality campaigner Magda Szubanski late last week.

The British singer, who was in Australia for two concerts in Melbourne and Sydney, met Szubanski before a concert at Melbourne Town Hall on Friday night.

Sam shared a photo of the meeting on Instagram, writing, “Dream come true. What an inspiring woman.

“Honoured to have sat with Magda Szubanski today. So excited to sing for you all tonight.”

Both of the openly gay entertainers were outspoken supporters of marriage equality during the postal survey campaign last year.

Sam told Channel Nine’s Today program on Friday of the emotion he felt after marriage equality was finally passed last month.

“I was just staring at my phone crying when it happened,” he said.

“It’s such amazing news and a beautiful way to kick off the new year.”

The 25-year-old, who’s in a relationship with 13 Reasons Why actor Brandon Flynn, has been holidaying in Sydney all month and told Today he was having “an amazing time”.

“Running around the streets of Sydney, all the gay bars, drinking a lot of wine… fabulous,” he said.

Sam will return to Australia in November for a national tour, including a concert at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre on November 6.
