‘You should be ashamed’: Gay men who live on the beach have the worst luck
A group of gay men living in a villa in Stonefield in Queensland’s south-east have spent the past four months living in “gay hell” after their families were forced to move out after the state Government passed a law restricting gay couples from renting properties.
The men say they’ve had to live with the consequences of the move and that their families are “living in fear”.
“We are living in fear of what will happen next,” said the men, who are not identified by name due to a court order.
“My parents and my brother were able to get the house and we moved in.
“It is very important to live in harmony. “
“I don’t think the government would do that if they were going to be homophobic.” “
The men said they’d been “very lucky” that the Queensland Government passed the anti-discrimination law in February. “

“We’ve had a very good run, and we’re happy with that,” said one of the men.
“Now we’re not going to get that chance again.”
Gay men living on the Gold Coast in Queensland have been told to stay in their own home after their landlords refused to rent to them.

They have been living on a farm in the area for more than a year.
They said they were told by their landlord to stay at their home.
“He said, ‘We have to evict you because you’re not a family’,” said the man.
They are not even trying to understand what’s happening. “
They have no idea what they’re doing.
They are not even trying to understand what’s happening.
They just want to get rid of us.”
The man said he was “shocked” when he found out the Government had been considering forcing the men to move.
That’s how this works.” “
But they can’t.
That’s how this works.”
Gay marriage has been legalised in Queensland since January 1, 2017.
The State Government said it would not enforce the ban, and the Department of Health and Human Services said it was reviewing the law.
The legislation was passed in the state’s second state-wide election.
The Government has said it will consider whether to allow same-sex couples to enter into a civil union.
The government has also said it wants to end a ban on same-day marriage, which was introduced in January 2017 and was the first state-specific legislation to be passed in more than 30 years.
