The Australian Government has a unique opportunity to show leadership in Asia and the Pacific to advance LGBTIQ+ rights.
Partnering with Pride was written by leading LGBTIQ+ groups across Asia and the Pacific, in partnership with the Global Philanthropy Project and Equality Australia.
The report recommends that Australia:
- Provide $15 million per year for LGBTIQ+ community groups in the region to help prevent legal and social stigma and discrimination
- Develop a strategy to guide Australia’s support for LGBTIQ+ human rights
- Ensure Australia’s high-level representatives promote and uphold the rights of LGBTIQ+ people around the world
