We want to be properly counted and considered in public policy making.
LGBTIQA+ South Australians are frequently not considered in policy development and law reform.
On an individual level, this serves to invalidate the experiences of LGBTIQA+ people and perpetuate feelings of invisibility for our communities.
On a systems level, this systematically erases LGBTIQA+ identities and means we’re left behind when policies, laws and services are planned.
Having a seat at the table and a voice in decisions that affect us is a high priority for over 75% of people surveyed in our Vision for SA Pride 2030, especially First Nations, intersex and older folk who’ve experienced erasure and invisibility in public policy.
We need our government to:
- Improve the representation of LGBTIQA+ communities in government strategies & services.
- Count our identities properly when collecting data and statistics.
