2 continents. 2 Different news

In today's TOI (Pune edition) found these 2 news in the Times International section.

1st News clipping read:

Sex-change couple jailed in Pakistan

Story about how a same sex couple have been jailed in Pakistan for getting married and staying together. They have now appealed to Mushy for help.

2nd news clipping, right below read:

Gay Aussie hotel wins right to ban hetrosexual

A MELBOURNE pub catering for gay men has won the right to refuse entry to heterosexuals in a landmark ruling the owner says will keep patrons safe.

The owners of Collingwood's Peel Hotel applied to ban straight men and women to try to prevent "sexually based insults and violence" towards its gay patrons.

Both these stories on the same page. Contrasting, yet interesting.
