On Christmas Day, 1991, Nick Toonen, a 29-year-old homosexual who lives on Australia's remote island of Tasmania, filed an unusual complaint with the United Nations. Toonen wrote to the U.N. Human Rights Commission in Geneva that Tasmania's 80-year-old laws banning "intercourse against nature" constituted a threat to his life and liberty, violated his privacy and led to constant vilification and threats of physical violence.
