NSW Gay & Lesbian Rights Lobby Inc.

Gay & Lesbian Rights Lobby - Equality Before the Law

The NSW Gay & Lesbian Rights Lobby (GLRL) advocates for the equality of lesbians, gay men and their families. We are run primarily by volunteers, and rely heavily on donations from generous individuals in the community.

We lobby politicians, government departments, policy makers and the media to redress discrimination.

We also advocate for community leadership to ensure social equality is achieved - not just legislative equality. 

We represent the gay and lesbian community at the local, state and national level through statewide consultations. We work closely with bisexual, transgender and intersex organisations, and all Members of Parliament to advance the rights of our communities in NSW.

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.

How will the funds be used?

To 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 affecting the gay and lesbian community and continuing to run events educating the gay and lesbian community on law reforms.

Key areas of expenditure

In the second half of 2018, lobbying to improve both State and Federal Anti-Discrimination provisions for lesbians and gay men - and supporting changes proposed by partner organisations affecting bisexual, trans and intersex members of the Australian community.
