This week on Well, Well, Well,  Cal Hawk unpacks Australia’s Religious Freedom Review with longstanding LGBTI community advocate Jamie Gardiner, Lee Carnie from the Human Rights Law Centre (HRLC) and Archdeacon of Albury and the Hume, Peter MacLeod-Miller.

One week after the announcement of the outcome of the Marriage Equality Postal Survey in Australia, Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull announced the expert panel appointed to examine whether Australian law adequately protects the human right to freedom of religion – the Religious Freedom Review.

Submissions to the expert panel are being accepted online for consideration until 14 February 2018 via the online submission form.
