Tasmanian Introduces Marriage Bill

Timothy Kincaid

June 20th, 2008

In the Australian state of Tasmania, Green Party member Nick Mckim will introduce a bill to legalize gay marriage.

“This is about tolerance and it’s about respect and those are values that I believe most Tasmanians would share and if we’re fair dinkum about removing discrimination in this state we should give all Tasmanians access to the fundamental institutions of our society, including marriage,” he said.

This should come up against fierce opposition from the national government. The Rudd government favors a registry (similar to what Tasmania currently has) and wants consistency throughout the nation.
