Protecting human rights and access to justice

LGBTIQA+ people and their families should enjoy lives free of stigma, discrimination and violence. They have rights to safety, inclusion and agency. They should experience equal outcomes through equal access to resources, opportunities and influence across the full spectrum of rights enjoyed by Victorians.

Rights relevant to LGBTIQA+ people and their families include the civil and political rights protected in the Victorian Charter of Human Rights and Responsibilities. There is also a broader range of economic, social and cultural rights.
