  Welcome to the Election Issue of Just.Equal Australia's newsletter.
 
Federal Election Campaign
   
 
Thank you to those who participated in our survey of what the LGBTIQA+ communities want this election.  The Full Report can be viewed by clicking the graphic on the left.  For a summary of the findings click here
 
From the results, Just.Equal Australia developed questions that have been put to political parties.  To see our questions, and the responses from parties and candidates thus far, check out our Election Campaign page here.
 
 
 
LGBTIQA+health and mental health
 
  .
The parties have all made funding commitments to improve LGBTIQA+ health and mental health.  To see the details, as collated by LGBTIQ+ Health Australia, the image or here
 
The Religious Discrimination Bill
 
The Morrison Government has promised to bring back its Religious Discrimination Bill if it is re-elected.  That legislation took away discrimination protections from LGBTIQA+ people.  Here is a reminder of who voted for that Bill, or parts of it, when it was last debated in February.  Click on the image to open up an enlarged version on our webpage.
 
 
Commentary on the Election
 
 
Just.Equal Australia board members, Rodney Croome and Brian Greig, have written about key LGBTIQA+ election issues.  Check out what they have to say by clicking the links below:
