Fixing the past, looking to the future

(by Alex Greenwich MP, 8 April 2014, Starobserver.com.au)

It’s easy to forget that just 30 years ago in NSW, gay men were being charged for loving other men.

They were criminalised, exposed publicly and lost their jobs and careers, families and communities as a result of institutionalised discrimination. We should never forget this injustice, and we have a chance send a message that our laws were wrong.
