About 1,000 gay rights supporters have marched on Queensland's Parliament, protesting against possible moves by the State Government to repeal civil union laws.
The protesters are also concerned the state's Healthy Communities organisation will lose funding for HIV prevention in favour of a new advisory committee.
Labor MP Jackie Trad addressed the crowd which descended on Parliament, criticising LNP Premier Campbell Newman's stance.
"This is not a policy agenda, this is a political agenda," she said.
"A political agenda that says that unless you are churchgoing, unless you are bible reading, unless you are straight, you do not belong in our world order.
"Can I say to you, they have not been elected as pastors for their electorates.
"They have been elected representatives for their electorates."
The State Government has been unhappy with the progress made by the Healthy Communities organisation on HIV prevention.
About $2.6 million in funding has been pulled and Health Minister Lawrence Springborg is redirecting it to a new ministerial advisory committee on HIV-AIDS.
