This years Annual General Meeting was held via zoom.
We want to thank our Chair Daniel Richardson-Clark and our Returning Officer Ruby Leonard-Taylor for their assistance in facilitating the evening.
The fight for LGBTI 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.
At the recent Annual General Meeting the Lobby’s Committee of Management was reelected and reaffirmed.
Members of the Committee include advocates, lawyers, social workers, public health workers, consultants, policy advisers and and mental health managers.
“It is an honour to work with such a dedicated team, and an exciting time to be involved,” the Co-convenors said.
“We are witnessing a dramatic change in the way we are doing things given Covid-19 and the impacts on LGBTI people.”
It was noted at the AGM that a special meeting will be held in the new year to finalise the name change consultation.
NSW GLRL’s Annual Report documents the group’s steps towards legal reform and equality for the state’s LGBTI residents, as well as protecting our current protections with the likes of Mark Latham.
