LGBTI Rights

Discrimination on grounds such as race, gender, disability, age or sexual orientation is unacceptable but all too common. There is strong evidence that discrimination is harmful to the health and wellbeing of individuals, communities and the economy. Evidence also demonstrates that equality contributes to fairer, safer and more productive communities.

The Human Rights Law Centre considers that the most effective way to achieve equality is through a proactive combination of laws and institutions, not a reactive, complaints-based system. This requires comprehensive equality legislation at both state and federal levels that promotes substantive equality and addresses systemic discrimination.

The Human Rights Law Centre’s Expungement Legal Service provides free and confidential legal help to anyone seeking to apply for a historical homosexual conviction to be expunged. Our team is staffed by LGBTIQ identifying lawyers and includes a volunteer lawyer with personal experience of the climate and police attitudes before the old laws were repealed.
