The Sun is Shining Down Under

After 11 years of a conservative Government, australia can now look forward to a new Labor Govenment after Howard conceded to Kevin Rudd in the election and it also looks like Howard will also lose his own seat. The Australian Labor Party has spoken in favour of lgbt rights and faced attacks from conservatives and the church. I know speaking to many LGBT Labor colleagues in Australia, they were extremely cncerned about the coninued attacks on trade union, workers rights and equality that they had been forced to endure over the past decade. The electorate showed it's time for change and now it's time to celebrate.
