Mr HIBBINS—I attended the Jewish Community Council of Victoria LGBTI community engagement symposium at the Beth Weizmann Community Centre. The symposium focused on understanding the human cost of homophobia, biphobia, transphobia and intersex exclusion in the Jewish community.

Presenters spoke on the benefits inclusion and diversity could have in the Jewish community, and the negative impact of exclusion and discrimination. I applaud the Jewish Community Council of Victoria for hosting this event and wish it well in its ongoing efforts to improve LGBTI inclusion in the Jewish and wider communities.
