Rights for Gay Australians

2007 - Volume 10 Number 5

Rights for all people, including those who are gay, are guaranteed in various United Nations human rights conventions. As the Universal Declaration states, “Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this Declaration, without distinction of any kind” Discrimination against gays and lesbians can only serve to cause them and their families’ pain and suffering. It would be difficult to find a comparable group in society today for which we could justify such ill-treatment within general social situations; or legislated discrimination.
