Statement on the Western Australia Review of the Equal Opportunity Act

Statement on the Western Australia Review of the  Equal Opportunity  Act

We are aware of the report by the Law Reform Commission of Western Australia and have concerns about the impact on LGB people, especially the recommendation to redefine homosexuality on the basis of gender rather than sex. It will take some time for us to fully consider such a large report, however, given its intention to update the entirety of the Equal Opportunity Act.

We would love to hear from others who have read the report, and WA citizens in particular.

Please tell us your thoughts on the report - get in touch to let us know which parts you agree with, and which parts you feel pose a risk of unintended harm to the LGB community.

The redefinition of sexual orientation can be found as recommendation 54  on page 117.
