TRANSGENDER PEOPLE AND SPORT RESOURCE LAUNCH AND PRIDE MARCH - VEOHRC
Transgender People and Sport: Resource Launch
The Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission is launching a new guideline - Transgender people and sport: complying with the Equal Opportunity Act 2010. The guideline provides sporting organisations with information on how they can promote participation and meet their legal obligations regarding discrimination based on gender identity. The guideline also outlines Equal Opportunity Act exceptions regarding single-sex competitions and how sporting organisations can support participation of transgender players.
Details of the launch can be found below or view the flyer for more information.
