This has footage of a "Checkerboard" ABC program from 1972. Yes folks, gay people actually existed back in 1972, in Australia (the roughian nation back then) and they went on a nationally televised program about their lives being gay. Long before the community thought it was OK to be gay, or as it was back then "homosexual".
They both as a couple were still agitating for marriage equality even to the end. It's upsetting to me that it didn't come to pass for them.
Australia has been at the forefront many times in respect of social change. Marriage equality is where we lost the ball.....
