The opposition Labor party voted at its annual conference to lower the age of consent for homosexuals from 21 to 16, the legal age for heterosexuals. The vote Friday was 3.7 million to 2.3 million.

During a Thursday debate on the matter, party member Debbie Epstein, a supporter of the Labor Campaign for Lesbian and Gay Rights, said, "Equality shouldn't be a difficult concept for socialists to grasp."
