We’ve been busy meeting with parliamentarians to stress the importance of getting this legislation right.
LGBTIQ+ people and women know the harms caused by facing discrimination and we stand with people of faith in calling for anti-discrimination laws which protect people from harm.
However, religious conservative groups want a license to discriminate against LGBTIQ+ people – pushing hard to retain laws that allow religious schools to exclude LGBTQ students and teachers and new laws for people to express hateful and harmful views with impunity.
Conservative religious groups might have the ear of politicians, and the ability to raise shocking amounts of money, but we know that they don’t represent the views of the majority of Australians.
We have seen time and time again the Australian community standing with LGBTIQ+ people against hate and division. The PM knows this, and that is why he has delayed introduction of the Bill, after previously saying the legislation was a top priority.
Now it’s time for Scott Morrison to listen to our concerns and bring in anti-discrimination laws that protect people of faith, women and LGBTIQ+ people equally.
Can you join me in calling on the PM to meet with LGBTIQ+ people and women?
