Charles Chauvel's valedictory speech

Thu 28 Feb 2013 In: Features View at Wayback View at NDHA

Rainbow Labour MP Charles Chauvel has farewelled Parliament, as he heads to a position with the United Nations in New York, advising on Parliamentary Development and Democratic Governance. Chauvel, a former lawyer, has been a stalwart advocate for the glbti community and during his time in Parliament has consistently spoken out on justice and human rights issues. He was a crucial figure in the repeal of the ‘gay panic’ defence, and recently successfully had Parliament back a motion condemning anti-gay legislation in Uganda and Nigeria. Watch his valedictory speech here: In The House - 28th February 2013
