Summary

"... is the report of a consulatation ... to canvas the experiences and views of people who may have been discriminated against on the basis of their sexual or sex and/or gender identity. It aims to inform and assist the implementation of the national Human Rights Framework, announced in April 2010. During the consultation, the Commission heard many personal stories of discrimination, violence, harrassment and bullying on the basis of sexual orientation and sex and/or gender identity. The majority of consultatation participants identified a need for greater protection from such discrimination, supporting the inclusion of protection from discrimination on these grounds in federal anti-discrimination legislation law. This report aims to capture the diverse range of views expressed by participants in the consultation about measures that would improve human rights protections for people of all sexual orientations and sex and/or gender identities.
