South Australia's politicians have gone above and beyond in the past 24 hours, in what can be described as a landmark day for the LGBTQI community.
Premier Jay Weatherill issued a formal apology last Thursday in parliament to SA's LGBTQI community for discrimination, citing to 'right many of the wrongs of the past'. On top of this, a pair of very important bills passed through the House of Assembly that day too - the Relationship Register Bill, which not only allows state-wide recognition of same sex marriages (as well as those from outside of Australia), but also next-of-kin and adoption rights, and the Gender Amendment Bill, which essentially makes the process of changing a South Australian's gender as registered on their birth certificate 99% easier.
Of course, both bills passed through the final hurdle of the Legislative Council with ease.
This chain of events follows the tragic death of British man David Bulmer-Rizzi while honeymooning in Adelaide earlier this year, and the resulting failure to recognise his marriage to partner Marco. At the time, state authorities informed Marco that the death certificate would read as 'never married'. The term was later removed from the certificate by Weatherill, and was an indication of the landmark changes that will now be recognised state-wide.
