Religious Discrimination


6th June 2024

In 2018 Just.Equal Australia commissioned national polling from respected pollster, YouGov, about protecting LGBTQA+ people from discrimination in faith-based schools.

The research showed high levels of public support. Our research played a significant role in moving the issue forward by shifting debate away from the views of a handful of anti-LGBTQA+ religious leaders towards what the broader community wants.

With the issue hitting the news again, we again commissioned a YouGov poll.
