LGBTI NSW

As an LGBTI advocate and activist based in Sydney, and someone who was previously the Policy Working Group Chair of the NSW Gay & Lesbian Rights Lobby, I have written a number of letters and submissions about LGBTI law reform issues in New South Wales. This page brings together my key posts on this subject, with many of these issues also summarised here:

Another issue to be the topic of multiple articles was the repeal of the ‘homosexual advance defence’ or ‘gay panic defence’ in NSW criminal law:

And finally a number of other posts on a broad range of other topics:
