A weekly legal service will be held at Fitzroy Legal Service to provide advice for our gay, lesbian, bisexual and gender-diverse community.
Our Lobby co-convenor Anna Brown welcomed the initiative.
“The Lobby frequently receives inquiries about legal problems and it is fantastic to be able to refer callers to a free service dedicated to the specific needs of our community,” she said.
“It can be very difficult for LGBTI people to source free legal information on family and relationship issues and LGBTI people also have specific legal needs due to the higher levels of discrimination and harassment they face.
“We look forward working together with the LGBTI legal service on community legal education, advocacy work and other initiatives.”
The new service will be launched on December 6. Read the full article for more information.
