Tasmania moves to allow same-sex marriages, the Labor Premier, Lara Giddings, had this to say:

“There will always be excuses, arguments and questions of timing when moving on difficult and controversial issues.

“But just as we have responded to other forms of discrimination throughout history, there comes a time when no amount of excuses should stand in the way of doing what is right.

“If Parliaments of the past did not have the courage to respond to changing community values then Tasmania would still be a state where homosexuality is illegal, where women don’t have the vote and no apology has been made to the Aboriginal stolen generations.
