I am a passionate advocate and activist on behalf of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) communities.
I have been involved in a range of LGBTI rights organisations, including as the Policy Working Group Chair of both the Victorian and NSW Gay & Lesbian Rights Lobbies. I have also served as a federal ministerial adviser, although I am currently not involved in any political party.
This blog will primarily discuss legal and policy issues that affect LGBTI Australians, with posts on anti-discrimination legislation (including religious exceptions and protections against vilification), as well as other LGBTI law reform, health and education matters. As usual, all views expressed are my own, and not those of any employer, past or present.
