Daniel Andrews premier, deeply moving gay apology - Victoria, Australia


Tears.

Watch as Daniel Andrews, Victorian state Premier, apologises to the gays of Victoria for the laws that criminalised them for being gay. He makes it personal, talking of people after meeting with them and getting their personal experiences of being criminalised for their sexuality.

For example, a 14 year old who reported being abused by a much older person, was also charged with sexual offences. Honestly........

I've mentioned just the tip of an iceburg. There's so many emotional triggers in the speech I simply ended up in tears through the last half of it. So eloquent. So well put together. So to the point. Victoria has the most wonderful premier now.
