How much has changed in gay rights?

How much has changed in gay rights? | School | Scoop.it

"Four decades ago gay sex was illegal in every state in Australia. So called poofter-bashing was rife. There were many cases in which gay men were severely beaten by the police whose job it was to protect them.

The TV series Number 96 caused a sensation by including the first openly gay character ever seen on Australian television. And 42 years ago, the Australian Dennis Altman wrote a book called Homosexual: oppression and liberation, which became a key text for the gay liberation movement here and in many other countries.

Now, with same sex marriage a widely discussed topic in Australian politics, it's easy to look back and think everything's been achieved.

This week, the same Dennis Altman published a new book whose title is a question: The End of the Homosexual? It examines how much has changed and what's still to do.

 

I asked Dennis Altman first about the likelihood of same sex marriage becoming legal in Australia."

A big political discussion going on right now is gay rights, and Australia is no outsider to the topic.
