Tasmania Adds Protections for Trans and Intersex people in Anti-discrimination Law Reform

Tasmania took a significant step towards equality last week with the state parliament’s passage of the Anti-Discrimination Amendment Bill 2012, extending legal protections on the grounds of gender identity and intersex status for the first time.

Tasmanian transgender advocate Martine Delaney praised the amendments, highlighting the importance of specific protections for transgender and intersex people in anti-discrimination law.

“It’s a very welcome development. The Bill specifically identifies intersex and transgender persons, ensuring better protections for people who are among the Tasmanians most vulnerable to abuse and discrimination,” Delaney said.
