A mes­sage from the Vic­to­rian Gay and Les­bian Rights Lobby

Q Magazine - - Q Comment -

It is said that 'the true mea­sure of any so­ci­ety can be found in how it treats its most vul­ner­a­ble mem­bers'. The re­cent treat­ment of the trans and gen­der di­verse com­mu­nity should make sec­tions of the Aus­tralian me­dia and our po­lit­i­cal sys­tem re­flect on how they use their in­flu­ence. Trans and gen­der di­verse peo­ple have great strength, con­trib­ute to our so­ci­ety and are val­ued, they are made vul­ner­a­ble by the un­nec­es­sary and hurt­ful at­tacks on them.

The Vic­to­rian Gay and Les­bian Rights Lobby stands proudly in sol­i­dar­ity with the trans and gen­der di­verse com­mu­nity in gen­eral and chil­dren who iden­tify as mem­bers of that com­mu­nity, in par­tic­u­lar. We are proud to love, to sup­port and to cel­e­brate our friends in the trans and gen­der di­verse com­mu­nity.

If you need coun­selling sup­port we would sug­gest con­tact­ing Switch­board on 1800 184 527.
