Acknowledging the fantastic work of the NSW Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby in conjunction with the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex [LGBTI] news publication the Star Observer.
Ms JENNY LEONG (Newtown) [4.52 p.m.]: I draw the attention of the House to the fantastic work of the NSW Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby in conjunction with the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex [LGBTI] news publication the Star Observer, the student-led professional development body Out for Australia, Transgender Victoria and Organisation Intersex International Australia, in putting together the Australian LGBTI University Guide. I also acknowledge the members of the community who worked on the project to assess every Australian university on their efforts towards LGBTI inclusion, with reference to the quality of anti-discrimination policies, support services, student-led societies and staff engagement.
I particularly acknowledge the work of Amanda Keeling and Justin Koonin from the NSW Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby, Benedict Brooke of the Star Observer, and Jen Chen, the NSW Queer officer and Out for Australia NSW outreach coordinator, as well as the Human Rights Commission for hosting the launch of the project. I encourage all members to look at this guide and to talk to universities in their electorates about this guide when they meet with them.
