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.

On Monday the 19th of October, close to one third of Norfolk Island's population gathered at the largest venue that could hold the crowd - Norfolk Island Airport - to see their new brand and celebrate a new direction in local tourism. Tourism makes up 90% of the local economy, so a topic that is very close to the locals' hearts. Norfolk Island Minister for Tourism, Geoff Gardner, noted that it was the biggest community turnout he'd ever witnessed on the Island. Norfolk Island Tourism will be launching the brand to Australian media on the 26th of October and to New Zealand media on the 4th of November. Contact marie@publiccity.com or linda@publiccity.com for more information or to register.

Subscribe to our channel: http://goo.gl/9CwQhg ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Description: When it comes to fear and horror, people can get their inspiration from a plethora of sources, such as Mother Nature. The places in this video are some of the most terrifying islands in the world and are scary enough to where you won’t want to pay any of them a visit. These islands are not the subject of horror movies or scary stories, they are real life, which probably makes them even more terrifying. Between stories of animals, disease, and chemical invasions, these islands are the subject of horror and science fiction. First we have Snake Island, located in Ilha de Queimada Grande in Brazil. This island is covered with the deadliest snakes in the world, so the nickname is meant to be literal. Even if you don’t have a fear of snakes, it is best to just keep your distance from this island as you may not be able to escape alive. In Vancouver, Canada, there is “Dead Man’s Island” as it was used as a small pox quarantine in the 1800’s as well as acted as a large gravesite. If you were sent to Dead Man’s Island while you were ill, chances are you were being sent to the island to die. Keeping the sick and dying away from the living was the only way that they knew how to contain the illnesses and try to save the lives of others. In Honshu, Japan, there are the Izu Islands. Residents of these islands are forced to wear masks as a way to protect themselves from the toxic fumes from the volcano. Why anyone would want to live on these islands is rather confusing, but the living situations must be convenient. Japan has its fair share of terrifying islands, as Okinawa was the site of the Battle for Okinawa during World War II. The island has also seen one of the largest acts of suicide in human history. Norfolk Island is located in Australia and served as the south east’s most notorious British penal colony in the late 1800’s. A penal colony is basically used to send prisoners and criminals into exile. Sometimes the treatment of the prisoners was decent, but for the most part, these people were treated roughly and many died in the early days of the colony. One of the creepiest islands is Seguine Island in Maine in the United States. The island has been haunted by a tale of the lighthouse and a married couple who were driven to commit an ax murder thanks to the effects of cabin fever. Imagine being stuck on an island while a crazy ax murder is chasing you around. That very visual is terrifying by itself. In New York in the United States, there is Hart Island, which saw its beginnings as a Confederate POW camp. Then it became a quarantine zone, and after a women’s lunatic asylum. Today it stands as the largest tax-funded gravesite in the world. There are many more terrifying islands in the rest of this video. Do you dare to watch? ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our Social Media: Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/TheRichest.org Twitter: https://twitter.com/TheRichest_Com Instagram: http://instagram.com/therichest
