Equality Roadshow

Twenty-three Victorians towns later, Gender and Sexuality commissioner Ro Allen has woven her equality bus across the state, from Wycheproof to Wangaratta, from Benalla to Bairnsdale and beyond, marking milestones along the way.

Its impact on LGBTi community has been huge. Soon the Roadshow will visit new places and return to some it has already visited before.

The Anti-Violence Project of Victoria is to receive a grant of $18,000 through the first round of LGBTI Community Grants, announced today by the Minister for Equality Martin Foley.

This will see the AVP update and enhance its violence reporting service and develop new Android and iPhone apps for the community to use to report violence, harassment and family and intimate partner violence.

These grants are part of $900,000 which will go to building the capacity of community organisations and developing the leadership and management skills of current and future LGBTI leaders.

We urge you to tell your MP to support Victoria’s birth certificate reforms. Head to Transgender Victoria’s site and show your support:

#VicBirthCerts allows trans and gender diverse people to have their ID reflect their true sex or gender. We believe this is a distinct source of harassment and violence that can be eliminated with this simple legislative fix.
