Wish me luck, as tomorrow’s the big day…

Following my submission to Queensland Parliament about the Bill to abolish gay panic defence in Queensland, I was asked to give evidence to the Parliamentary inquiry. I do so tomorrow.

The other people who are also witnesses are Phil Browne, on behalf of the Brisbane LGBTIQ Action Group, Tom Clark on behalf of the LGBTI Legal Service, former Queensland Law Society President and prominent criminal lawyer Bill Potts and another solicitor on behalf of the Queensland Law Society, and Wendy Francis and another form the Australian Christian Lobby.

It should be no surprise, but all the witnesses giving eivdence are broadly in support of the change, with the exception of those from the Australian Christian Lobby who are opposed.

I was pleasantly surprised about the support I have received for going and giving evidence, including some powerful words from prominent GP Dr Wendell Rosevear OAM. 

Wish me luck!
