As I’ve been saying for a long time and it increasingly is being borne out, trans rights are an international human rights issue.
That message was driven home at the recent Australia and New Zealand Professional Association For Transgender Health biennial conference at Adelaide University that took place October 3-6
Australian Human Rights Commissioner Tim Wilson gave the opening keynote speech at this event.
He was appointed in February and the appointment was notable Down Under because Wilson is the first ever openly gay human rights commissioner.
Wilson’s speech clarifies the Australian Human Rights Commission position on trans human rights issues.and leaves no room for doubt for our Aussie trans brothers and trans sisters where the commission stands.
Here’s Commissioner Wilson’s October 3 ANZPATH keynote speech.
