This state-sponsored homophobic torture is an appalling international travesty. Where's the international outcry? https://t.co/0JM39LRJX7

Again, absent is prejudice motivated violence and hate crime, homophobia (transphobia) and huge gaps and inconsistency in how each state and territory treats or continues to ignore the health implications of these. https://t.co/rbJ8A25JFL

No mention of health implications of violence including homophobia (transphobia), prejudice motivated violence or hate crime yet family violence impacting LGBTi rates a mention. That this area is missing shows a huge gap in how health is measured. #austpol https://t.co/bGyqiJy98c
