Mientras, en Australia, a pesar de que hay un gobierno conservador impidiendo hasta leyes de parejas de hecho (como las sociedades de convivencia del DF), el sistema judicial se empieza a mover, quizá debido a un propio interés:
The High Court judge Michael Kirby highlighted the inequity recently when he pointed out his partner of 38 years, Johan van Vloten, would have no access to Justice Kirby's pension if the judge died before him.
Under current law, if a retired judge in a heterosexual relationship dies before his or her partner, the partner is entitled to 62.5 per cent of the judge's pension. But Mr van Vloten would not receive anything because he is not female.
One minister supporting the change expressed amazement there was opposition to the idea.
"There shouldn't even need to be a debate," the minister said.
Y mientras, en Uganda, en pleno centro de Africa, donde es ilegal ser un disidente de la heteronormatividad, un movimiento LGBT se empieza a organizar.
