Tasmanian Lower House set to back gay marriage - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Tasmania's Lower House looks likely to become the first in Australia to vote in support of same-sex marriage.

Labor has indicated it will support a motion from its state power-sharing partners the Greens, who have tried and failed to introduce state-based same-sex marriage legislation in the past.

Greens leader Nick McKim last week announced the party would bring on a motion in Parliament this week expressing in-principle support for marriage equality and calling on the Federal Government to amend the Marriage Act."
