Supporting growth and sustainability of trans and gender diverse peer support across Victoria. Supported by the Victorian Government.
Ahead of the upcoming federal election, Transgender Victoria (TGV) on behalf of its members, the trans and gender diverse (TGD) community, has produced this election booklet to advocate on a range of issues relevant to TGD Australians and by inference LGBTIQ+ Australians.
It is important to note that trans and gender diverse people not only have gender identities and/or expressions different to those with which they were assigned at birth but many also have sexual orientations different to the cisgender, heteronormative majority of Australians. Therefore, this booklet contains issues which are of relevance to all LGBTIQ+ Australians because within all the categories of that group there are significant numbers of individuals who identify as trans and gender diverse.
Although TGV’s mission is chiefly to improve the lives and well-being of trans and gender diverse (TGD) Victorians, this document refers to all TGD Australians as the issues raised are relevant across Australia.
