We’ve made an appointment to see our local MP Mike Latter Wednesday and will also bring him letters from our extended family. We’ve asked friends and family to lobby, wrote a personal account that’s been tweeted, retweeted and shared around Facebook, and I’ve gotten work colleagues involved too.

I am scared by the complacency I’ve encountered from a couple of people who blindly believe that things won’t change, that they cannot change and that I’m overreacting.  I wish I was overreacting! One of the comments was ‘Queensland on a whole has moved forward so much that they could not possibly do something so backward’. But they can, and they did by altering civil unions;

  • changing them from civil partnerships to registered relationships
  • removing the State based public aspects of celebrating them.

So I am pleading with you all not to shrug and think this will pass by.

Make no mistake this the most significant rollback of gay and lesbian rights by a government in the Western world, ever.
