Blog: Promoting inclusion for LGBT+ people
Blog by Chief Commissioner Geraldine McGahey
Writing in her latest blog, Chief Commissioner Geraldine McGahey said, "I was recently invited to speak on equality protections for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people as part of LGBTQIA+ week. I thought it would be useful to also blog about this as equality laws are often complex and difficult to understand.
This area of equality law is no less complex than others as there are several legislative provisions relevant to the promotion of equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people. Legal interpretation is made even more difficult by the lack of case law.
However, it is worth saying, at the outset, that equality laws provide protection against unlawful discrimination for everyone, including LGBT people, on a wide range of grounds and across a wide range of activities."
