Embracing Equality Pledge, IDAHOBIT Day Launch
The Embracing Equality campaign invites you to the launch of the ‘Australian first’ Embracing Equality Pledge on IDAHOBIT (International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Intersexism and Transphobia) Day, 3:00-4:00pm, Monday 17 May 2021.

Featuring a presentation from Associate Professor of Public Health and Deputy Director of the Australian Research Centre in Sex, Health and Society at La Trobe University Dr. Adam Bourne on what the latest LGBTIQ+ data is telling us, the launch will also feature a dynamic panel discussion with Raylene Harradine (Chair, Victorian Aboriginal Children and Young People’s Alliance), Jayde de Bont Pipan (Co-Chair, Victorian Government LGBTIQ+ Taskforce) and Angus Clelland (CEO, Mental Health Victoria).

The Pledge is the important next step by Victoria’s leading peak organisations to embrace equality and work to end the discrimination and inequities experienced by LGBTIQ+ people in Victoria. It outlines a shared commitment to uphold the human rights of LGBTIQ+ people, ensure LGBTIQ+ inclusive services and education, and build a sustainable community-controlled LGBTIQ+ sector.
