Equality Votes LGBTIQ+ Federal Election Forum

Where do your representatives stand on issues that matter most to LGBTIQ+ people in the lead-up to the 2022 Federal Election?

Organised by Equality Australia, LGBTIQ+ Health Australia, Australian Federation of AIDS Organisations and Intersex Human Rights Australia, and hosted by Patricia Karvelas, the #EqualityVotes Federal Election Forum brought together politicians from the Greens, Labor and the Coalition for a lively discussion on LGBTIQ+ issues, from trans health to religious discrimination, conversion therapy and mental health.

Watch the replay of the #EqualityVotes Federal Election Forum with Senator Andrew Bragg (Coalition), Senator Penny Wong (Labor) and Senator Janet Rice (Greens) below.


Report: Rainbow Votes

At least 850,000 Australian voters are estimated to be LGBTIQ+.

We asked LGBTIQ+ people and their allies what matters most to them this election.

Over three weeks in February and March 2022, 7,902 people responded to our LGBTIQ+ federal election survey, including 5,578 LGBTIQ+ people currently living in Australia.

Our federal election work has been made possible thanks to the funding support of Tripple and Maniferra, together with thousands of Equality Australia supporters across the country

#EqualityVotes: Federal Election Scorecard

We reached out to the major parties asking them where they stand on the key issues facing LGBTIQ+ people in Australia, so that our community would have the information we need before casting our vote.

Our team has summarised this information into a simple scorecard, mapping it against the priorities identified by almost 8000 LGBTIQ+ people and supporters who responded to our community survey earlier this year.

Check our the scorecard, summary analysis and full party responses here.
