Sexuality and Gender Diversity


816. Hon ALISON XAMON to the Leader of the House representing the Minister for Community Services:

I refer to state government funding of homelessness services, in particular short-term accommodation facilities.

(1)  Is there a requirement within existing procurement processes stipulating that services must not turn people away on the basis of their sexual orientation?

(2)  If no to (1), will the government consider including this as a requirement in future procurement processes?

Greens welcome expungement process for historical homosexual offences: Not before time!

Greens spokesperson for Sexuality and Gender Identity Hon Alison Xamon MLC has welcomed today's apology from the Government to men convicted historically convicted of homosexual offences - saying it is long overdue and an important step forward. 

"The Greens have always stood for equal rights for LGBTI+ people – freedom of sexuality is a fundamental human right," Ms Xamon said. 

"This is a move that the Greens have called for, for a long time.  

"It’s about time that WA follows the lead of other states in starting the expungement process."
