Tassie gay phobia shame

The Mercury: Tassie gay phobia shame [27jul05]

TASMANIA has been identified as the most homophobic state in the nation.

And the state's Northwest is Australia's most homophobic region.

The shocking finding is despite Tasmania having the most progressive anti-discrimination and gay-relationship laws in the country.

The findings of a national study of homophobia, released yesterday, have prompted calls from gay activists for greater efforts to combat prejudice entrenched in the hearts and minds of Tasmanians.

The study by the Australia Institute found 40 per cent of Tasmanians believed homosexuality was immoral.
