RightsTalk: Mardi Gras event

In the lead-up to the 38th Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras, please join Australia’s Human Rights Commissioner, Ed Santow, and a panel of leading Australian LGBTI human rights advocates to discuss the past, present and future role of law in protecting the human rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) Australians.


Anna Brown - Director of Advocacy and Strategic Litigation, Human Rights Law Centre;

Morgan Carpenter - Co-Executive Director of Organisation Intersex International (OII) Australia, and;
