Tasmanians standing up for equality - 30 year anniversary of the Campaign

On the 20th October Amnesty activists gathered on parliament lawns in Hobart to help celebrate the 30 year anniversary of the successful campaign years ago to end Tasmania’s oppressive and discriminatory laws against gay men.

As part of the community event, Amnesty activists collected over 120 petitions signatures to end forced conversion therapy in Australia and to stop the harassment and violence against Ukrainian LGBTQI activist Vitalina Koval.

The event was a chance to reflect on how far we’ve come as a community since then, while continuing to stand up for LGBTQI rights at home and around the world.
