The Greens believe that freedom of sexuality and gender identity are fundamental human rights and recognise that discrimination on the basis of identity is a significant cause of psychological distress, mental illness and suicide.
One of the key campaigns we support is for marriage equality. We believe that people should have the right to marry the person they love in the country they love, regardless of their sexuality. The Greens were the first party in Australia to make reform in this area a key policy across federal and state parties. Amending the Marriage Act is just one way the Greens are working to remove discrimination against Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender or Intersex (LGBTI) people in federal legislation.
