Ar­gentina, Bel­gium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Fin­land, France, Ice­land, Ire­land, the Nether­lands, New Zealand, Nor­way … and on goes the grow­ing list of na­tions that have le­galised same-sex mar­riage, giv­ing full recog­ni­tion and rights to cou­ples en­ter­ing into such unions. As the mar­riage equal­ity de­bate rages here, Sally Glaet­zer hit the streets of Ho­bart to talk to young Tas­ma­ni­ans – from thought­ful gay teenagers to fun­da­men­tal Chris­tians – on the vexed and emo­tive is­sue of in­sti­tu­tional dis­crim­i­na­tion fac­ing our LGBTI com­mu­ni­ties. Also this week, our colum­nist Don Knowler writes about find­ing a new lease of life on the slopes of ku­nanyi/Mount Welling­ton, and we dip into the fas­ci­nat­ing world of Natasha Cica in her role at one of the na­tion’s top cul­tural spa­ces.
