One NT Brotherboy wanting to medically transition was turned away from the Royal Darwin Hospital and told to seek help interstate.

It looked like Australia could join the rest of the world on Tuesday afternoon in terms of Marriage Equality.
The Coalition took to a six hour party meeting to discuss the issue of same sex marriage and whether the liberal party should be able to vote.
Six hours later and the answer was no. Marriage Equality would NOT be on the government agenda and the party would stick with the traditional statement of marriage; which is between a man and a woman.
So Nurnakah show took it upon ourselves to show our support for Same Sex marriage. The PM’s sister used the show as a platform for expressing her disappointment. Christine Forster Councillor for the City of Sydney urged the PM to go to a plebiscite at the next election!
While, Green Senator Janet Rice spoke out about her disappointment saying it was the Government’s chance to prove itself for the people.
While it wasn’t all rainbow arch ways for weddings the National LGBTIQ Health Conference is under-way in the Nation’s Capital and we caught up with our own Starlady who is attending and speaking at the national conference.
