Religious freedom and the LGBTIQA+ community Other events...
The 2017 marriage equality survey stirred up the discussion around the rights of LGBTIQA+ people and religious freedoms, leading to the Ruddock review and the draft package of religious freedom bills currently doing the rounds.

The proposed Religious Discrimination Bill is being framed as simultaneously both deeply necessary, and making only conservative changes to existing legislation. But what does the bill actually contain? What does it mean for LGBTIQA+ and religious communities? What about the impact on the people who belong to both?

Join discrimination law expert Liam Elphick for a mini-lecture unpacking the bill and how it relates to existing protections, followed by a panel discussion with LGBTIQA+ people and their allies from faith communities as they discuss what the bill would mean for them and their experiences living in the intersection of their identities.
