Towards A National Plan For Trans Equality: Submission

Everyone deserves to live with dignity and respect, safe from harm and violence.

Like everyone, trans and gender diverse people want to live happy, healthy lives of purpose. Yet discriminatory laws, policies, practices and attitudes, as well as harmful rhetoric about trans lives and rights, stand in the way.

In preparing this submission, Equality Australia’s #TransEquality project undertook a survey of 1,693 trans and gender diverse people living in Australia to seek their views on the human rights issues affecting their lives and their suggestions for what would significantly improve their lives.

This submission reflects the voices of trans and gender diverse people in Australia, and our recommendations for areas of action stemming from what they told us.
