The Australian Labour Party (ALP) have explained that they plan to discuss marriage equality in their yearly conference in December. However, Prime Minister of Australia, Julia Gillard, has publicly announced that she does not support any change to the platform.
According to The Mercury, "Tasmanian Labor senator Carol Brown said the vote in Launceston yesterday was a major boost to efforts to change the national platform and paved the way to removing the last remaining piece of legislated discrimination against same-sex couples."
It seems that only New South Wales is the only Australian state not to pass any motions regarding same-sex marriage.
Not only this, but Tasmania also called for same-sex adoption rights this weekend too. It seems Tasmania are ahead of the game.
