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.

DATE: Saturday 31 January 2015
TIME: 1pm for a 1.15pm start
VENUE: Footscray Park
ADDRESS: Maribyrnong Boulevard, Footscray

We will include further information and links to the resource on our website early next week.


Pride March

Pride March recognises and celebrates the people and events that inspire the courage, solidarity, pride and diversity and strong sense of community of Victoria’s gay, lesbian, bisexual, intersex and transgender people. Pride is 20 in 2015.
