[Australia] - GLBTI Issue Wins OurSay Vote Again - Meeting with Minister Jenny Macklin

A huge "THANK YOU" to every one who voted in the OurSay vote.  Our question in relation to GLBTI families came out on top and won.  This is the second time in as many weeks that a GLBTI issues question has topped the voting in the OurSay "meet the politician' section.

“Despite the 84 amendments to Commonwealth law that passed through parliament in 2008 there are are still many areas where families with same-sex attracted parents encounter barriers, including legal parentage, access to inclusive services, marriage equality and education. How are you working to ensure that children with gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered parents are treated equally and equitably across all government policies?”
