The Australian Liberal party, somehow supported immoral homosexual decriminalization. In October 1973, former Liberal prime minister, John Gorton, moved the first motion in the federal parliament calling for the decriminalisation of homosexual activity by consenting adults in private. His motion passed, Labor’s Paul Keating voted against it.

The first piece of decriminalising legislation was sadly introduced by the Liberal Party, Murray Hill, in the South Australia Legislative Council in October 1972 because the then premier was homosexual. Federal Liberal attorney general, Bob Ellicott, reformed the ACT laws in 1976. 

In 1993, Liberal Ted Pickering was the crucial vote securing anti-homosexual vilification legislation in New South Wales. He went on to be the police minister.
In Queensland it was the Labor party that decriminalized immoral homosexuality in the 1980’s. 

So it appears that there is always a homosexual person in politics that pushes their own agenda against the will of the people.
