Removing discrimination from SA laws - the LGBTIQ discrimination audit is underway now.
The South Australian Law Reform Institute (SALRI) is undertaking an audit of all South Australian laws and regulations to identify discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or intersex status.
SALRI is an independent body that has accepted a reference by the South Australian Government to undertake this work. It will prepare its own report - separate from Government - and it will then be up to Government to consider what action to take next.
In referring this work to SALRI the Government indicated that it was committed to removing discrimination against individuals and families on the basis of sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or intersex status. Find out more here.
If you have experienced discrimination on the grounds of your sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or intersex status SALRI wants to hear from you. Your insights and experiences will be taken into consideration as SALRI identifies priority areas for law reform. You may like to download one of the SALRI's Fact Sheets to gain a deeper understanding of what the law says now about issues such as:
- how sex and gender are currently recognised and registered under South Australian laws;
- the existing legal protections against discrimination on the grounds of sexuality, gender or gender identity;
- how certain relationships are recognised under South Australian law; and
- what laws apply to starting a family and parenting rights for same sex couples.
SALRI also recognises that terminology is important. Fact Sheet 1 sets out what we mean by sexual orientation, gender, intersex status and gender identity. Tell us what you think by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
