Gender Diverse Advocacy Election Hub

Federal Election 2022

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 hub with resources and information on a range of issues relevant to TGD Australians and by inference LGBTIQ+ Australians.

Election Advocacy Booklet

TGV has developed an election booklet on a range of key issues relevant to trans and gender diverse Australians.

This booklet also 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.
