Summary

"Through the targeted consultations, submissions and use of YourSAy - the South Australian government online consultation website - SALRI was able to determine legislation that was of particular concern for the LGBTIQ communities. This includes the Adoption Act 1988 (SA) that excludes same sex couples' eligibility as prospective adoptive parents. The current terminology in Part 3 of the Equal Opportunity Act 1984 (SA) includes the terms 'sexuality' and 'chosen gender', which have been described by many as outdated or inappropriate. This can be contrasted with the more inclusive, and in some cases greater, protections in the Sex Discrimination Act 1984 (Cth) based on the attributes of 'sexual orientation', 'gender identity' and 'intersex status' as defined in the Sex Discrimination Act 1984 (Cth). On the basis of submissions and review of the current laws, SALRI further recommends that amendments be made to the regime governing the registration of sex at birth and the change of sex on the Births, Deaths and Marriages Register. This will necessitate the repeal of the Sexual Reassignment Act 1988 (SA) and the development of a replacement system. These reforms will need to establish processes for registering the birth with a non-binary sex and establish a process to alter the Register to record a change of sex that does not require evidence of irreversible medical treatment."--Page 8.
