Federal Election - Gay Equality


The law should recognise caring and loving relationships. It is clearly within the power of the ACT to provide its own system for recognising same sex relationships.

The Federal Government is wrong to intervene, especially when federal law still continues to discriminate against same sex couples in key areas like superannuation, taxation, health and welfare benefits.

Labor is committed to ending this discrimination. We are also consulting on the best method to recognise same sex relationships at the national level.
