AME's National Director Rodney Croome was recently on Norfolk Island to discuss the draft same-sex marriage bill. Here he discusses on local radio the positive impact to family and community. AUSTRALIAN MARRIAGE EQUALITY Media Release Wednesday September 17th 2014 NORFOLK ISLAND TAKES LEAD ON MARRIAGE EQUALITY Draft same-sex marriage legislation tabled in Norfolk Island parliament Australian same-sex couples would be able to marry in their own country Gay Norfolk Islander “proud and excited” at chance to wed Norfolk to benefit by up to $12 million per year NI Bill drafted to avoid problems that sank ACT law Australia’s smallest territory is taking on one of the nation’s biggest issues with Norfolk Island set to allow same-sex couples to marry. At 10.30am today Sydney time, Norfolk Island Assembly member, Hayden Evans, will table a draft Bill that will allow same-sex couples from across Australia to marry in their own country rather than travelling to foreign countries, and will boost the Island’s economy by many millions of dollars. Mr Evans said, “Over the years, gay and lesbian Norfolk Islanders have made a really important contribution to our community and I want to recognise this by giving them equality and dignity in return.” “That’s why I am tabling a draft Bill to allow same-sex couples to commit to each other through marriage and have the same rights and recognition heterosexual couples have.” “If the bill becomes law it will showcase to the world that Norfolk Island is an accepting and supportive community where everyone is valued.” Australian Marriage Equality national director, Rodney Croome, is on Norfolk Island to brief Assembly members and start a community consultation about the benefits of the bill. “Norfolk island is doing what the overwhelming majority of Australians want – allowing Australian same-sex couples to marry the person they love in the country they love.” “This Bill has been drafted to withstand the constitutional problems that sank last year’s ACT’s Marriage Equality Act and, should it pass, I urge the federal government to let it stand.” “But if the federal government has outstanding constitutional concerns these should be aired in the High Court.” Cam Christian, a gay Norfolk Islander living in Brisbane and a descendent of Bounty mutineer, Fletcher Christian, said he is excited and proud that he may soon be able to marry his fiance on his island home. “I’m just so proud that Norfolk is leading the way on an issue that matters to so many people", he said. “When my partner, Paul, and I got engaged we planned to have a commitment ceremony on the Island, but the chance to be married in front of family and friends is just so important and affirming for us.” Cam’s partner, Paul Gilmour, said, “As an Australian citizen the idea of marrying my partner legally in front of our beautiful and supportive family and friends is exciting. This is a step in the right direction for not only people like ourselves but future generations" Andre Nobbs, Chief Executive Officer for Oceania Economic Development Corporation and a former Norfolk Island Chief Minister said, “Marriage equality is about fairness for everyone, and it will also bring a much-needed destination profile, and economic and jobs stimulus to Norfolk Island.” “Over the previous 12 months 240 Australian same-sex couples have married in New Zealand, and if the same number marry on Norfolk the wedding spend alone will be $12 million.” “On top of this will be expenditure by guests, and the invaluable global exposure the Island will get for doing the right thing.” The Norfolk Island Same-Sex Bill has been drafted to avoid the pitfalls that saw the ACT’s Marriage Equality Act struck down by the High Court last year. It creates a distinct legal status of same-sex marriage and does not impinge on the federal Marriage Act at any point. Norfolk Island is a self-governing Australian territory of 2000 people that lies half way between Australia and New Zealand. It has its own history, language, identity and legal system. Many islanders are descended from the Bounty mutineers led by Fletcher Christian. Mr Evan’s Bill will be debated next month. The federal government has the power to override Norfolk Island legislation in extraordinary circumstances.

Throughout childhood, political scandals often are ignored or unattested until the individual matures to recognise the actions of government. On Norfolk Island, a vast majority of the younger generation are aware of democratic activity due to the abolition of self-government in 2015 and the island’s integration into the political and socio-economic policies following the 1st of July, 2016. The changes and integrations of Australian laws, tax and government control that have occurred and continue to occur have left a majority of islanders in fear of the loss of jobs, income; overall Norfolk’s culture, identity and lifestyle. A major movement on the island has developed in opposition to the changes that have been forced onto the community. As islanders and descendants of the Mutiny of the Bounty, the changes have impacted members of future generations of Norfolk and is believed that the changes and decisions that are made now will impact the future generations of Norfolk Island. My major works aims to continue this dialogue in a forum that more truly reflects the views of the young generation on the island. The intended purpose is to represent the perspective of the youth leaders of Norfolk; our experiences of the ongoing events and how the sudden impact of change that are affecting our community. With such controversy about what is beneficial for the island, the future generations of the community are represented, as it is this generation that will suffer most from the short term effects of losses of jobs and incomes in our years of secondary and post-secondary schooling; and the long term effects of the loss of our culture, identity and lifestyle. I wanted to give the future generations a voice in such a contentious situation; to provoke and challenge the apparent benefits that have been implemented on our society by the Australian government and the perspectives held by those who agree with the changes.
