Jacqui Tomlins: Ten Years Ago Today…

Ten years ago today one of the very first battles for marriage equality in Australia was fought. It was a small, quiet battle between two same-sex couples and the Howard Government. It started in the Victorian Family Court and ended in federal parliament. And it saw the joyous, hopeful and affirming celebration of two same-sex marriages turn into the Marriage Amendment Act 2004.

Josh Bradley and Luke Ryan have just announced their engagement. However, there is one problem halting their big plans: they can’t get married in Australia.

Right now, across Australia, married couples — where one partner has since been through gender reassignment surgery — are forced to make a terrible choice.
