So, you too thought it was government’s place to chiefly protect and provide certain services for its citizens. Well, you were wrong, as I was. In the Australian state of Victoria they see it also is their job as a state government ‘…to help shape the state’s equality agenda for years to come, with the opening of public consultation on the Victorian Government’s first ever whole of government LGBTIQ strategy.
Over the past five years, the Victorian Government has created a more inclusive Victoria by reforming legislation to remove discrimination, building the Victorian Pride Centre and providing strong support for and investment in LGBTIQ organisations, community events and festivals.
Minister for Equality Martin Foley today announced the Victorian Government is now looking to the future with the opening of a public consultation process to develop Victoria’s first ever whole-of-government LGBTIQ strategy.’
‘Quotes attributable to the Minister for Equality Martin Foley
“For equality to be fully realised we need a clear vision – informed by a comprehensive understanding of the needs of LGBTIQ Victorians. This consultation is a vital part of making that happen.”
“Victoria’s first LGBTIQ Strategy will be developed in close consultation with LGBTIQ people, organisations and communities from across the state and will inform the Government’s equality agenda for years to come.”
Quote attributable to the Victorian Commissioner for Gender and Sexuality Ro Allen
“A Government that supports LGBTIQ Victorians by placing them front-and-centre of strategy development – as collaborators – is a Government that truly believes in equality.”‘ https://www.premier.vic.gov.au/victorias-first-whole-of-government-lgbtiq-strategy/
The Victorian government seems to be fixated on sodomy and sodomites. In the second paragraph above is mentioned the Victorian Pride Centre! What a waste of tax dollars this is! The Victorian state government has thrown away ‘…an extra $10 million in funding for the centre, which is the first of its kind in Australia, providing a space for groups and organisations to share ideas and resources to support their work for the LGBTIQ community.’ https://www.premier.vic.gov.au/marching-towards-equality-with-a-centre-for-pride/
The Sodomites are definitely out of the closet in Victoria. This is government gone mad on other people’s money!!!
