Embracing pride and equality at Midsumma
Over the past few weeks we were proud to again participate in Melbourne's Midsumma festival, sharing information with the LGBTI community about our safe and inclusive legal services.
Visitors to our stall at the Midsumma Carnival learnt more about our Equality Law program, and how we can help if someone is experiencing discrimination, harassment or vilification. Our Managing Director Bevan Warner and other senior staff also joined our contingent braving the extreme heat to participate in this year's Pride March.
We know that members of the LGBTI community can have multiple legal problems and face discrimination at many different times in their lives. Our Acting Program Manager Equality Aimee Cooper recently spoke to JoyFM about the way discrimination laws do and don't protect LGBTI people.
