Description :

Folder used by the 'Let's get equal' gay and lesbian rights campaign to distribute information.

With the formation of Let's Get Equal (LGE) in 2000 the campaign to advocate for equal rights for same sex couples gained renewed impetus. The South Australian Labor Government introduced its Statutes Amendment (Relationships) Bill, intended to remove legislative discrimination against same sex attracted people, in early 2005. After passing in the Legislative Council it failed to complete its passage through the Lower House prior to the March 2006 election.

On 14 November 2006, the Attorney General, Michael Atkinson, introduced a revised Bill, the Statutes Amendment (Domestic Partners) Bill. This legislation amended existing legislation to include same sex couples and other couples living in non-sexual domestic relationships. The legislation passed the House of Representatives on 23 November and the Legislative Council 0n 7 December.

Same-sex couples continue to be discriminated against on issues of adoption of children, access to IVF, and marriage, a Commonwealth responsibility.
