  1. I hope this is the beginning of Australian politicians seeking to engage sensibly with the issue of LGBT equality in marriage and recognising the groundswell of opinion of Australians is in support.

    Queensland’s bizarre approach last week may well be seen as one of the last attempts of the ACL and right wing extremists to flaunt their bigotry.

    Hopefully, real and demonstrable change is coming.

    Well here’s hoping!!!

    What we do need though, once this equality is in legislation, wherever in the world, to stop it constantly being brought up as debate by the bigot would want it stopped. No turning the clock back.

    Fingers cross for Australia!!

    Good luck, Australia! In the end, you will win! We all will. Wouldn’t it be sweet victory if Australia legalised it this year followed closely by France? What a slap in the face of C4M/CI and the religious cults that would be. I will gloat when I see that happen, but I will gloat anyway whenever another countries introduces equal marriage. It’s a victory for all of us.
