Former Prime Minster Julia Gillard was in the hot seat recently but this time it was a young boy who put her there.
During a Q&A style forum at the Sydney Opera House the boy received cheers and applause when he asked a very simple yet pointed question:
"How come you didn't let gay people get married?"
Initially Gillard chuckled before responding,
“It’s a politician in the making there I think."
Gillard continued her response by adding,
"I do understand that the position I took on gay marriage perplexed many people, given who I am and so many of my beliefs. I’ve actually had lots of conversations with many of my old friends about this — some of them have got a different view than me… But I’m a lot older than you, and when I went to university and started forming my political views of the world, we weren’t talking about gay marriage."
