Since Australia said Yes to #MarriageEquality six months ago there have been 2,500 weddings of #LGBTI couples, and the recognition of another 3,000 such marriages that took place overseas.
Moves are now afoot by religious organisations and others to protect their religious beliefs by expanding exemptions to anti-discrimination laws. This would have the effect of expanding the grounds on which people can legally discriminate against LGBTI people.
How does Australia grapple with this balance between religious freedom and LGBTI people's freedom from discrimination?
Check out this discussion between two of the very best legal minds.

Congratulations to newly-crowned 2018 Miss Grand Australia - Kim Gundani!
“As the first black African-Australian to represent Australia in an international pageant, I am honoured, humbled and grateful for the opportunity,” says Kim, a Monash JD student.
“Miss Grand Australia is an opportunity to fulfil my purpose which is to serve and reach out to my community.”
Kim is studying law with the aim of becoming a barrister advocating for children and families.
“I have worked with children and families for over five years, and most of the women and children were victims of domestic violence,” she says. “With an understanding of the cycle of violence and the impact this has on the victim, I felt that I needed to be a voice.”
Kim's commitment was not lost on the judges, who voted unanimously.
"We fell in love with her brain before we fell in love with her beauty," says Dani Fitch, National Director of Miss Grand Australia.
“Kim is an incredibly switched-on young woman with a big heart seeking to help others... Kim really brought together the whole package seamlessly, elegantly, and ever so eloquently,” says Dani.
“We are looking forward to Kim's advocacy for UN Women Australia and continuing her messages of peace, equality and safety for all."
Kim, who was a state finalist for this year’s Miss World Australia, says being Miss Grand Australia for the next twelve months is “an incredible platform to raise awareness about domestic violence against women and children.”
Kim will now represent Australia at Miss Grand International this October.
