Australian LGBTIQ Policy Guide

The Equality Project is proud to launch the first edition of the Australian LGBTIQ Policy Guide, a tool for Australian political parties, peak bodies and community groups who are interested in developing informed political policy text concerning the LGBTIQ community. The Guide covers topics as diverse as LGBTIQ asylum seekers, human rights, responses to ex-gay and conversion therapy, workplace inclusion, LGBTIQ rural and regional communities, and sports and the arts.

The Australian Equality Party is on Facebook.

About the author

Veteran gay writer and speaker, Doug was one of the founders of the UKs pioneering GLBTI newspaper Gay News (1972) , and of the second, Gay Week, and is a former Features Editor of Him International. He presented news and current affairs on JOY 94.9 FM Melbourne for more than ten years. "Doug is revered, feared and reviled in equal quantities, at times dividing people with his journalistic wrath. Yet there is no doubt this grandpa-esque bear keeps everyone abreast of anything and everything LGBT across the globe." (Daniel Witthaus, "Beyond Priscilla", Clouds of Magellan, Melbourne, 2014)
