Australian government may move to bar discrimination against homosexuals
December 15, 2010
Australia’s attorney general is proposing that the nation’s new government should advance legislation that will bar discrimination on the basis of sexual preference.
The proposal—contained in a “Red Book” briefing for the incoming government of Prime Minister Julia Gillard—would prohibit discrimination against homosexuals and lesbians. Attorney General Robert McClelland’s office said, nevertheless, that the Gillard government would not change its public stand in opposition to legal recognition of same-sex marriage.
