Queerty is better as a member
It’s so frustrating that it passed in the Lower House but failed in the Upper House. Tasmania is treated like the backward cousins in Aus and it would’ve been a great kick-in-the-face to the mainlanders if this had passed. It seems like the only people stopping this are the out-of-date pollies as state and national polls continually show the public want this. Well, at least in Aus same-sex relationships are legally recognised and you can’t be fired or evicted for being gay/lesbian and since 1992 the Aus Defence Force prohibition on openly gay or lesbian members serving in the military. Each step is one closer to equality.
