Aus increases discrimination protections

Wed 26 Jun 2013 In: International News

File Photo Australia has introduced new anti-discrimination protections for older GLBTI people in care. Its House of Representatives has passed The Sex Discrimination Amendment (Sexual Orientation, Gender Identity and Intersex Status) Bill 2013. The amendment removes religious exemptions for Commonwealth-funded aged-care providers – exemptions that would have allowed religious providers to discriminate against older LGBTI people seeking access to aged-care services, Samesame.com.au reports. Campaigners are describing the move as an historic day for the LGBTI community in Australia.
