The Last State To Decriminalise Homosexuality Now Officially Supports Marriage Equality

Tasmania has become the third Australian state to pass a motion in support of same-sex marriage, following a lengthy debate on Wednesday night.
Liberal premier Will Hodgman and deputy premier Jeremy Rockliff both threw their support behind the Greens motion, which passed the Tasmanian lower house 15-9.
Tasmania joins New South Wales and Western Australia as the third state to pass an in-principle motion in support of marriage equality. However, only the Australian federal parliament can actually legislate the reform.
Tasmania was the last state in Australia to decriminalise sex between men in 1997. Since then, the state has become a frontrunner in terms of LGBTI rights by recognising same-sex unions, allowing same-sex adoption and introducing anti-discrimination protections.

Sorry. No data so far.
