Sexuality and Gender Diversity

Alison and the Greens believe freedom of sexuality is a fundamental human right and that acceptance and celebration of people of diverse gender identities is essential for genuine social justice and equality.

The Greens stand for the repeal of all federal and state laws which discriminate on the grounds of sexuality.  The Greens have always actively campaigned for marriage equality.

LGBTIQ+ people are two to three times more likely to experience depression and anxiety than the broader community and as such have been identified as a priority population in the WA Suicide Prevention Strategy. 

As a fierce mental health advocate, Alison is committed to calling on the state government to ensure mental health and suicide prevention organisations are adequately funded to provide tailored support to those who are struggling. She will continue to pressure the government to amend any legislation or practices that serve to discriminate against LGBTIQ+ people.
