/ The Informer / Government & Organisations / Marriage Equality has finally passed in Parliament : 7th December 2017

 

 

It happened today, on the 7th December 2017 Parliament passed a bill for same sex marriage to finally become law in Australia.

There was  a standing ovation in Parliament and 25 minutes later this episode of The Informer went to air.

We break down the day in Australian Parliament  with Rod Smith, as people around the nation were glued to their computers and tvs all week  as so many MP’s wanted to have their say on the amendments to Dean Smith’s Private Members Bill regarding definitions and religious freedoms.

While the Prime Minister is patting himself and his party on the back for getting this done, we hear from the community and remind him that the process they have chosen caused further damage to our marginalised community and that is not something to celebrate.

We touch in with Anthony Wallace from Equal Love Melbourne as well as with Brett who proposed to his partner last month…. well it is his fiance now!

Dean & Matthew hosted this episode of The Informer on JOY 94.9
