The Queensland Government is reportedly preparing a Bill to remove the cruel and unnecessary barriers currently faced by trans people who wish to change their birth certificate to reflect their gender
We know that an overwhelming majority of Australians believe transgender people deserve the same rights and protections as other Australians. But the Australian Christian Lobby, Pauline Hanson’s One Nation, and other vocal opponents will try to convince the government otherwise.
If enough of us write to the Premier expressing our support for fairer birth certificate laws in Queensland, we can sure up the government’s resolve in the face of these inevitable attacks.
If you’re in Queensland, make sure Premier Palaszczuk knows you want the Bill passed! We’ve made a start on a letter, that you can delete or edit as you see fit. Make sure you change the subject line!
Our top tips to writing a great letter are:
- Be concise
- Give personal reasons to explain why this issue is important to you
- Always be polite
