Same-sex couples could be allowed to marry in Tasmania by the end of the year. Tasmanian Premier Lara Giddings is confident that her state will be the first to legalise gay marriage after consulting with legal experts.

With a new poll showing that a majority of Australians now support same-sex marriage, some advocates say change is now inevitable. But Federal politicians have said they will challenge the decision in the High Court if the Tasmanian parliament passes the law. (Image source: Fibonacci Blue from Flickr)
