Victorian Greens LGBTI spokesperson Sam Hibbins MP has launched the exposure draft of the Equal Opportunity Amendment (LGBTI Equality) Bill 2016 and supporting documents for public consultation.
The Bill -
- removes the special religious exemptions for faith-based schools and organisations
- strengthens the powers of the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission, which benefits everyone in Victoria
- creates new protection for people with intersex variations, for the first time in Victoria
- overhauls the outdated definition of 'gender identity'
