 LGBT People to Watch in 2013

Brown decided to join the Victorian Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby as a way of giving back to the LGBTI community.

“I wanted to get involved and I thought the best way I could do that was to use my legal and policy skills and start with an organisation that needed some reinvigoration,” Brown says.

2013 will see the lobby taking the achievements of 2012 forward and part of that will be building on the No To Homophobia campaign, getting national anti-discrimination protections for LGBTI people through federal parliament, and movement on gay sex convictions, same sex adoption and marriage at a state level.

“I’m pretty pleased with what we have achieved this year but there’s definitely more to come,” Brown says, “and it was really inspiring at our AGM to have some of the past co-convenors and other people involved in the lobby’s history acknowledge that work and talk about what we could be doing into the future.”
