The fight for lesbian and gay rights has made significant advances in recent years, but there is still much to do – and the NSW Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby is leading the charge.
Since 1988, the core purpose of the GLRL has been to achieve legal equality for lesbians, gay men and their families at a state and federal level. We’ve accomplished a lot but there’s still much to do.
Despite some progress, there remain important gaps in anti-discrimination protection at both state and federal levels.
Homophobia, biphobia and transphobia in schools is serious. We are working to provide school kids, teachers and families with appropriate resources to tackle any bullying they may experience at school.
We lobby politicians on a range of issues including parenting rights, domestic and family violence, and LGBTI refugees.
How many of us still feel afraid to hold a partner’s hand walking down the street? Our daily experiences, as well as our interactions with Government services, need to be seen and heard by those in power.
