LGBT Discrimination

What is LGBTQIA+ Discrimination?

Individuals who identify as LGBTQIA+ are protected from discrimination by law. According to the Sex Discrimination Act 1984 (Cth), there would be discrimination based on an individual’s sexual orientation where a person is treated less favourably than another person in a similar situation. Each state have also enacted legisation that address discrimination such as Anti-Discrimination Act 1977 (NSW).

Both direct and indirect discrimination is unlawful if they occurred in certain public places including:

  • work
  • education
  • provision of goods and services
  • provision of accommodation
  • registered clubs.

However, there may be situations where certain forms of discrimination may be exempt from the relevant Act’s application.
