An expert from RMIT University is available to talk to media on the first anniversary of marriage equality.
Dr Raymond Trau (0403 128 691 or firstname.lastname@example.org)
Topics: lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender/gender diverse, intersex and queer (LGBTIQ+) inclusion, diversity and inclusion at work
“Today marks the first anniversary of the yes vote, which decided that all Australians deserve the same opportunities under the law.
“The LGBTIQ+ rights movement is still very much in progress in Australia with many people still afraid to come out at work, as our recent research highlighted.
“The Out at Work: from Prejudice to Pride report released in August found less than a third of LGBTIQ+ employees were out to all their colleagues and this significantly compromised their wellbeing and work performance.
“Even though Australia is making progress around LGBTIQ+ inclusion, marriage equality still does not exist in many countries, including developed nations.”
