OII Australia was invited to attend the Wear It With Pride launch on the Opera House forecourt recently.
Wear It With Pride celebrates the changing of 85 pieces of legislation that previously discriminated against same sex couples.
The Federal Attorney General introduced these changes following the same sex enquiry conducted by the Australian Human Rights Commissioner Graham Innes.
The event was well attended by some celebrated gay and lesbian identities and their allies. Despite the wind and immanent rain there was a good audience and large media contingent.
OII was interested to hear the acronym ‘LGBT’ used by most speakers and in particular by those that organized the Wear It With Pride website and this event.
As far as it was possible to tell by a good look at the attendees that no bisexual or trans people were present, and if they were they were invisible.
