BGF says YES to Marriage Equality

BGF says YES to marriage equality

To help LGBTIQ communities, friends and families stay strong and resilient in the lead up to the marriage survey postal results announcement next Wednesday, our friends at ACON have put together a new resource, ‘Stronger Together’, which provides tips and info – click here. They will also have extra counselling staff on hand to provide community members needing support.

We stand beside all of our LGBTIQ clients and supporters at this time.

BGF supports humanity and equality in our communities. When it comes to having our say about marriage equality, we proudly say "YES"!

We recognise the right of our lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) employees, volunteers, clients and customers to live and work free of prejudice and discrimination. This includes the right to marry the partner of their choice.

Not only is marriage equality the right thing to do, it also helps improve workplaces and service delivery by allowing everyone to be treated with equal respect and feels included. We therefore support marriage equality. 

We encourage everyone to vote YES for equality, and to post your surveys back as soon as you receive them.

This is a matter of equality. This is our chance to be heard. Vote Yes.
