Australian Labor has a proud history of delivering reforms that protect and improve the lives of LGBTIQ Australians.
When Labor was last in Government we removed 85 laws that discriminated against same-sex couples, extended paid parental leave for same-sex partners, and protected LGBTIQ people in aged care.
But there’s still more to do.
A Shorten Labor Government will work hard to prevent harm and promote justice for LGBTIQ people by:
- Removing laws that allow religious schools to exclude LGBTIQ students or sack a teacher or staff member;
- Committing $39 million to step up the fight to end HIV transmissions in Australia;
- Opposing “gay conversion therapy”; and
- Working to enhance housing and homelessness support services for LGBTIQ Australians.
No one with a conscience supports discrimination.
Labor will not give up on LGBTIQ students, even though the Morrison Government have turned their backs on vulnerable children in the most shameful way.
