Casey Conway has spoken to NITV about Australia’s first gay, Indigenous MP, Chansey Paech maiden speech in Northern Territory parliament

Casey Conway, a model, family practitioner and former NRL player, told NITV that he welcomed Paech as a fellow prominent gay Indigenous personality.

“It is timely that an openly gay Aboriginal man has taken on such a leadership role for his community, state and country,” he said.

“His maiden speech was delivered with pride and the acknowledgement of the diversity he represents was empowering,” Conway said, “I’m sure many young Indigenous gay men in NT and around Australia felt the same way.”
