2022 SA Election

SA Rainbow Advocacy Alliance is a non-partisan community run charity advocating, educating and informing for a LGBTIQA+ inclusive, healthy and safe South Australia.

Ahead of the 2022 SA Election on 19 March, we met with and wrote to South Australian leaders from across the political spectrum urging them to commit to creating a healthy, safe and inclusive community for LGBTIQA+ South Australians.

To help LGBTIQA+ communities and our allies understand the major political parties’ policies in relation to our Vision, we’ve developed this helpful scorecard outlining each parties’ commitments.

Our scorecard is our independent assessment of parties’ policies relating to LGBTIQA+ communities. It’s purpose is to assess, compare and inform our communities about the policies of political parties and candidates as they relate to the health, safety and inclusion of LGBTIQA+ South Australians.

We do not support or oppose a particular party or candidate, or direct people on how to vote. You can find each party’s responses to our Vision for SA Pride 2030 below:

About our campaign
