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.
