TAS Election 2021

On May 1st 2021 Tasmanians vote for our next Parliament.

Equality Tasmania has surveyed all parties and key independents on a range of issues important to the LGBTIQ+ community.

The responses we have received are below.

The issues we have asked about include:

  • Banning conversion practices

  • Prohibiting unnecessary medical interventions on intersex children

  • Protecting the Anti-Discrimination Act and the state’s gender reforms

  • Compensation for people convicted under former anti-LGBTIQ+ laws

  • Reform of the Coroner’s Act so LGBTIQ+ partners are treated equally

  • Better health and mental health services

  • More inclusive schools

On Thursday April 22nd from 6-8pm, Equality Tasmania will host an online LGBTIQ+ election form where you can hear from the candidates and quiz them about their policies. More information soon.
