To the Honourable the President and members of the Senate in Parliament assembled:

The petition of the undersigned citizens of Australia respectfully showeth:

That your petitioners are offended and outraged by the direction of the AIDS Programme in Tasmania, in that it actively promotes Homosexual Acts and in particular anal intercourse, and that taxpayers money is being used to fund literature which directly promotes homosexual behaviour as a normal and desirable human activity.

Your petitioners therefore urgently and strongly request that the Federal Government and the Minister for Health review the National AIDS Programme and withdraw funding for this literature, and from any other aspects of the AIDS Campaign which encourages or condones anal intercourse.

And your petitioners as in duty bound will ever pray.
