Submission on reform of the Anti-Discrimination Act 1991 (Qld)

Intersex Human Rights Australia has made a formal submission to the Queensland Human Rights Commission on reform of the Anti-Discrimination Act 1991 (Qld). The Act is sometimes purported to provide some protections for people with innate variations of sex characteristics via protections on grounds of gender identity. In our view, this has never been the case.

In our submission, we make 12 recommendations for reform to legislation to provide protections from discrimination and harm on the ground of sex characteristics.
