Nicholas Toonen was a gay HIV activist and the "leading member" of the Tasmanian Gay Law Reform Group (TGLRG) who was challenging Sections 122(a) and (c) and 123 of the Tasmanian Criminal Code, which "criminalized various forms of sexual contacts between men." (105) In Toonen, the Human Rights Committee of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, acknowledging a broad range of international and domestic actors' concerns for "gay and lesbian rights," found that the Tasmanian statute criminalizing sexual contact was in fact a violation of several articles of the ICCPR, including the right to privacy.
