The Australian Equality Party (AEP) aims to bring a compassionate and explicitly human rights based perspective to Australian politics.
We believe in the capacity of every individual to create change and that when we come together with a common goal our capacity to effect that change is enormous. We believe in the value of personal experience and recognise the power of sharing personal stories in educating the broader community and bringing about change.
We affirm the fundamental dignity of all Australians regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity or intersex status and seek to advance their human rights, and the rights of their children and families. We seek to make Australia a more inclusive, safer and kinder place for the LGBTIQ community and especially for LGBTIQ young people.
