Poll: 52% of
Australians support same-sex unions

A new poll suggests that the majority of Australians support same-sex relationships. The Newspoll survey reports that 52% of Aussies agree that the federal government should introduce a new law that formally recognizes same-sex relationships, while 37% disagree, and 11% said they didn't know. But a gay rights lobbyist says that despite the encouraging numbers, the government isn't going to act. New South Wales Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby spokesman David Scamell told the Sydney Star Observer, "It's quite clear from speaking with the [prime minister's] office that their position won't be changing in terms of how the government deals with same-sex relationships and same-sex families." On Sunday the group plans to make its case a lot more visual. Along with several prominent political figures, it will plant 10,000 pink paper hearts reading "All love is equal" in Sydney's Victoria Park. (Sirius OutQ News)
