  1. First of all I have to say I am not Gay. But I always had this dream of visiting Australia.Well I think I will scratch that off my bucket list. If it is as homophobic and anti -equal rights as they sound here . I don`t think I want to be near any country like that. I would sooner visit Ghana or Uganda. At least there, I know what to expect.They are not, so called civilized to begin with.

    1. You are not visiting a country because of politicians? What a dumb guy you are

    2. LOL, yeah, because the UK is really any better. Farage, anyone?

    3. Just because we hear of homophobia day in day out in Africa on PN IT DOESN’T MEAN EVERY BLOODY AFRICAN IS HOMOPHOBIC!!, as someone with Ghanaian parents, I find it really offensive, especially as my Mum has been so supportive of gay rights – but of course, because they’re African, they’re uncivilised?!

  2. @Bruce- Come. Australians are not homophobic; cut the racism. Really though, poor form on the spelling error- the PM in Aus in Julia Gillard. Two Ls.

    It’s nice to know that, Bob Katter has a gay half brother… poor guy looks almost exactly like Bob. Besides, Bob Katter is from Queensland and we’re use to people like him from that part of the world. @Bruce please don’t think that Mr Katter speaks for many Australians, he’s just a silly old bigoted politician.

  6. Oh what a tangled web! If only people could accept themselves for who they are. If you fear you may have same-sex attraction, don’t attack other gays because of it. Ask yourself WHY you want to spew out such vitriol? WHY are you so threatened by homosexuality? It can ONLY be because you have experienced same-sex attraction and are terrified by it. Well don’t be. Just learn to accept who you are and to love your fellow man (as it were …)

  7. Bruce, you will not visit a country because of politicians? What a dumb guy you are

  8. It’s Julia “Gillard” not Julia “Gibbard”
