Remembering those that will not be at Pride March

February 1, 2013

On Sunday in St Kilda the Australian Sex Party will participate in Pride March. We march with other organisations and community groups in a public display of the courage, solidarity, pride and diversity of the lesbian, gay men, bisexuals, transgender and intersex people and their supporters.

In doing so we remember those who are can’t be there. Those who took their life due to homophobic bullying or discrimination.

Sadly the exposure draft of the Human Rights and Anti-Discrimination Bill 2012 from the Gillard Government seeks to entrench exemptions for religious organisations to discriminate on a person’s sexuality, gender or marital status. Anything which offends their religious sensibilities. This extends to religious organisations providing government services.

It is not good enough and our LGBTIQ youth deserve better. From this government and from all of us.

How many more will die before Australians demand better?
