Come celebrate LGBTQIA+ communities and hear about the Greens' plan for achieving equality!
Join us to launch our new policy, followed by a panel discussion emceed by Jason Ball featuring Janet Rice and activist Theo Boltman, followed by special performances from comedians MaryEllen and Jordan Barr.
LGBTQIA+ people continue to face discrimination. Many experience a lack of autonomy over their bodies, and difficulty accessing holistic and comprehensive health services and secure housing. It's time for change and the Greens are ready to fight for our future - join us for this important event.
When: Sunday 1 May, 1pm to 3pm
Who: You! And Steph Hodgins-May, Janet Rice, Jason Ball, Theo Boltman, Mary Ellen, Jordan Barr
Where: Victorian Pride Centre, 79/81 Fitzroy St, St Kilda
What: Launch of our LGBTQIA+ Policy, panel discussion and performances
In the last year alone, the LGBTQIA+ community has faced discrimination and a fear-mongering campaign led by the most powerful people in the country. From the outright bigotry of the Religious Discrimination Bill the government tried to ram through Parliament with Labor’s support, to the recent attacks on trans people behind a facade of ‘protecting women’, this is a community that needs our support.
The Greens are the only party to commit to fighting wholeheartedly for holistic and comprehensive health services, secure housing and safe, positive spaces in schools and other institutions for LGBTQIA+ people
