Rodney Croome


Rodney Croome is an advocate for gay human rights and author of Why vs Why: Gay Marriage.

Rodney Croome fronted the high-profile campaign to decriminalise homosexuality in Tasmania in the 1990s and has been involved in a wide range of other issues from combatting homophobia in schools to campaigning for gay blood donation.

His work has been recognised by a number of awards including a Centenary Medal and an Order of Australia. In recent years Rodney has been a strong advocate for marriage equality. A book he co-authored on the issue was published in May this year.
