Summary

This report explores the lived experience of human rights and discrimination among lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex (LGBTI) people in Australia. It presents findings from one of two consultations held in parallel to inform the Human Rights Commissioner's work around sexual orientation, gender identity and intersex (SOGII) issues. LGBTI people and allied individuals, groups, service providers, and organisations were asked about how well SOGII rights are respected and protected in Australia, specific legislation and policies that unduly restrict SOGII rights, and what more should be done to promote a culture of respect. Issues raised include structural discrimination, religious freedom, participation in employment and sport, equal relationship recognition, reproduction and the interests of children, young people in primary and secondary school, the 'gendered' nature of healthcare, conversion therapy, surgery and classification of intersex infants and children, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, expungement of criminal records, the 'homosexual advance' defence, and age of consent. The report also states what law reform is needed to address this inequality, and the role of the Australian Human Rights Commission in this work.
