I lived in Melbourne for five-and-a-bit years (2003-2008) and was involved in LGBTI advocacy during that time (including serving on the Committee of the Victorian Gay & Lesbian Rights Lobby).
As a result, I have maintained an interest in Victorian LGBTI law reform, which has seen renewed activity under the Andrews Labor Government in recent years.
This page includes my posts on LGBTI issues in Victoria, with a particular focus on anti-discrimination legislation. These articles include (with the most recent appearing first):
Victoria’s Equal Opportunity Amendment (Religious Exceptions) Bill 2016
Victoria’s Births, Deaths and Marriages Registration Amendment Bill 2016
Submission to Victorian Greens Equal Opportunity Amendment (LGBTI Equality) Bill 2016
For a summary of the strengths and weaknesses of Victoria’s LGBTI anti-discrimination laws more generally, please see What’s Wrong With the Victorian Equal Opportunity Act 2010?
