LGBTIQ+ issues in the ACT
In 2019, the ACT Government commissioned Equality Australia to conduct an independent and comprehensive legal audit of ACT legislation and regulations for laws which could discriminate against or cause harm to LGBTIQ+ people.
The purpose of the independent legal audit was to identify areas for law reform to remove discrimination and help to make the ACT a safe, respectful and inclusive jurisdiction for all. As part of the legal audit, Equality Australia conducted research into ACT laws, consulted with LGBTIQ+ and Government stakeholders, and developed recommendations with the expert assistance of the project’s Expert Advisory Group.
