LGBT Communities… know your rights. The Anti-Discrimination Commission Queensland is an independent statutory body established under the Queensland Anti-Discrimination Act 1991 (the Act). The head office is in Brisbane, and regional offices located in Cairns, Townsville and Rockhampton.
We deliver frontline services to the Queensland community, including businesses, state and local government, the community sector and people throughout the state. McLeod Chambers,78 Spence Street (cnr McLeod Street), Cairns. 1300 130 670 (Toll Free) or 074037 2100.
The role of the Human Rights Commissioner is to raise systemic public policy issues that impact on human rights, and seek reform.
The Commission has in its legislation commissioners responsible for age, disability, race and sex discrimination. There are also commissioners responsible for children‘s rights and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander social justice. These portfolios are often represented through dedicated Ministers in state and federal governments, as well as significant government agencies.
There is no dedicated commissioner for sexual orientation, gender identity and intersex (SOGII) issues in the Commission‘s legislation, nor Commonwealth Ministers or government agencies that take primary responsibility for advancing issues that arise for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) Australians.
As a consequence, SOGII issues too often fall through the cracks of policy. This is particularly concerning because of the level and type of State-sanctioned discrimination experienced by LGBTI Australians. To address this, I have also taken on the role as the de facto SOGII Commissioner at the Commission to ensure that LGBTI people have a voice.
