Mark Latham’s Anti-Trans Kids Bill: What you should know

The Educational Legislation Amendment (Parental Rights) Bill 2020, introduced into NSW Parliament by One Nation MLC Mark Latham, was the worst legislative attack on LGBTI rights in Australia this century.

The following posts explain the serious threat posed by this legislation. Even though the Bill was rejected-in-principle by the NSW Government in its March 2022 response to the Committee Inquiry Report into the Bill (chaired by Latham himself!), it remains a threat with Latham likely to be elected again in March 2023, and potentially holding the balance of power in the NSW Legislative Council for the next four years (or longer).
