Hi there Lloyd.

Afer reading your post on Australia and how accepting it is for people who maybe gay, I am just wondering if there are any issues on homosexuality and the travelling community over there? Not as in tourists but gypsies? I am thinking of doing some research out there but need to first see if this is worth while. There isn't much literatue on this online and in library's in UK. If you could get back to me on this that would be much appreciated. Thanks John
