Australia: Anti Discrimination Bill Doesn’t Cover Intersex Citizens

Sydney, AustraliaIntersex rights advocate Gina Wilson said that Australia’s draft Human Rights and Anti-Discrimination Bill leaves intersex people vulnerable to discrimination.

‘[Intersex] is not a sexual orientation, it’s actual physical differences,’ Wilson said in an interview with Sydney Morning Herald.

Wilson added that it is ‘vitally important’ that intersex is listed separately as characteristic protected from discrimination. She said that previous attempts by intersex people to challenge state anti-discrimination laws with similar language to the proposed new federal law have been rejected.
