The former leader of Marriage Equality Gilmore Dawn Hawkins has met with local Nowra Anglican Minister the Reverend Geoff Thompson.

They've opened a respectful and diplomatic dialogue over a controversial letter, urging the Federal Government to protect exemptions in the sex discrimination act, allowing gay students to be expelled.

Ms Hawkins said they're both committed to protecting the mental health of children.

"We both felt that it was a really positive interaction between us and we're both quite excited about the way forward", Ms Hawkins said.

"We both believe that we've got some work to do here and we're both in a really good place with this", she said.
