    I hope same sex marriage becomes legal in Taiwan, lets hope the Courts allow it to go ahead!

    Nepal and Vietnam are both thinking about implementing equal marriage too!

    Here in Australia nothing at all happens in terms of LGBT-friendly legislation (such as equal marriage)!

    What a total joke my own home country of Australia has become!

      Your problem isn’t Australia, it’s the dinosaurs in the Federal Parliament. The difference in attitude between the state governments and Canberra is astounding. Definitely time for a clear out and a new generation of MPs to be voted in.

    2. Equal rights isn’t just about marriage. Even if full marriage rights are approved in all these countries, you will still have more civil rights in Australia that any gay couple in Taiwan or Vietnam, since there are a lot more people who are willing to consider you as normal human being in your country.

      BTW, marriage is coming to Australia. Sooner or later.

      Don’t be so down on Australia. It will come. Just look at the UK. Who would have thought we’d have a conservative government introducing equal marriage, unheard of anywhere. The Australian people need to send a loud and clear message that the government must respect the wishes of the people.

      As David said, vote them out. Campaign proactively to get rid of them. Get as much straight support as you can and you’ll win. Be loud, very loud.

    Looks like nothing being announced today. The court has pushed it upstairs to the “Grand Justices”, basically the country’s Supreme-Court-Max.
