A win of sorts..

Saturday 24 November 2007 will be recorded as the day that friends, Alisia and Shel announced their pregnancy and the day that Labor was voted into office federally..

..we have a new Labor govt, headed by Kevin Rudd.. our local member as it happens !!

..Labor have no plans to recognise same sex headed families among other families in Oz.. there is no plan on their part to amend The Marriage Act 1961 (Cth) to apply to same sex couples as well as different sex couples..

BUT, the Labor Party is generally less conservative and has campaigned to amend other legislation that disadvantages GLBTQI people.. its a big cheer and a turning of a corner.. not a victory for GLBTQI people or same sex headed fams just yet.. but its still a BIG CHEER .. wOO hOO !!
