Pride 2017: Our record as LGBT+ champions

This Pride we mark 50 years since Parliament first voted to legalise homosexuality. The Liberal Party became the first party to commit to a Gay Rights policy in 1975. Since then we have:

  • Created policy on equal age of consent and equal marriage.
  • Banned teachers from presenting homosexuality as unacceptable.
  • Granted trans people the right to change their gender on official documents.

Today we are campaigning to:

  • Make sex and relationship education at school LGBT+ inclusive. 
  • Tackle bullying in schools on the basis of gender, sexuality, gender identity or gender expression.
  • Introduce "X" gender markers on passports and official documents.
  • Protect LGBT+ asylum seekers at risk of being deported to a country where they are under threat. 
  • Decriminalise homosexuality worldwide and advance LGBT+ rights.
