The announcement comes as pressure mounts on Prime Minister Julia Gillard to support overturning her center-left Labor Party’s ban on gay marriage. The policy change will bevoted on its annual national conference in December.

Tasmania state’s Labor branch at the weekend became the seventh of Australia’s eight state and territory branches to pass a motion supporting gay marriage.
