Petition against homosexual law reform presented at Parliament, Wellington, New Zealand
Politician Peter Tait and businessman Keith Hay, carrying boxes into Parliament containing the petition against homosexual law reform. Photographed by an Evening Post staff photographer on the 24th of September 1985.
Peter Tait and Keith Hay were both involved in setting up the Coalition of Concerned Citizens to fight homosexual law reform. The coalition organised a petition against the proposed legislation. In spite of being billed the biggest petition in New Zealand's history, it failed to prevent the law change in 1986.
