The NSW Gay & Lesbian Rights Lobby (GLRL) seeks to lobby for the equality of lesbians, gay men and their families. The GLRL is run primarily by volunteers, and relies heavily on donations from generous individuals in the community.
We lobby politicians, government departments, policy makers and the media to redress discrimination against lesbians and gay men.
We represent the gay and lesbian community at the local, state and national level through statewide consultations. Our major consultations have highlighted social injustice and legal inequality faced by lesbians and gay men, in areas such as relationship recognition, parenting and adoption rights, workplace discrimination, the age of consent and homophobic violence.
We educate the gay and lesbian community on how to activate their rights. We provide information to the community, media and individuals on gay and lesbian rights and areas of discrimination. We refer clients to legal and welfare services and direct them to ways to enforce their rights.
We empower the community to take action in the push for equality. The GLRL runs volunteer working groups which organise campaigns and events highlighting equality issues.
Lobby NSW and Federal politicians as well as educating the community. Specifically researching and producing submissions into Government Inquiries, developing and distributing of reports on key legal issues affecting the gay and lesbian community, development and distribution of detailed factsheets on areas of law reform effecting the gay and lesbian community (previous factsheets found on our website (http://glrl.org.au/index.php/Rights/Rights/Printable-factsheets), continuing to run events educating the gay and lesbian community on law reforms.
