Greens spokesperson for Sexuality and Gender Identity Hon Alison Xamon MLC has strongly opposed the decision of the National Australia Day Council to promote former tennis player and Perth fundamentalist church pastor Margaret Court to Companion Division in the Order of Australia.

Ms Xamon said the decision to award Ms Court yet another award was inappropriate given her widely-publicised, extremely homophobic and transphobic views.
