Premier “ambivalent” on gay panic, unacceptable:
Nov 15, 2016 — Wayne Ruks’ elderly mother Joyce is devastated the QLD government are delaying action on abolishing 'gay panic’ - the homophobic legal defence used by her son’s killers.
QLD Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk promised to axe it this year - but there’s only a few siting days of parliament left. We need you to call her office today, urging her to scrap the defence before parliament goes on break.
Call - (07) 3719 7000
Joyce's son was bashed to death in my churchyard 8 years ago - she can’t wait any longer for this archaic excuse for murder to be scrapped.
