Sign the Trans Affirmation Statement

For Trans Equality and Human Rights

We, the undersigned:

Affirm the equal dignity and human rights of all people

Understand and respect that there can be differences between assigned sex and gender identity and expression and we value the unique contribution of people of diverse genders, including people who identify outside of the gender binary

Vigorously affirm and support the safety and rights of transgender and gender diverse people

Categorically reject statements and actions intended to invalidate, harm, erase, and oppress transgender and gender diverse people’s identities and lives

Recognise that discrimination based on gender identity or expression is damaging to the health of children, families, and society

Encourage the creation of safe environments for gender diverse, transgender, and intersex people

Affirm everyone’s right to access and use facilities, services, activities and programs consistent with their gender identity

Recognise that for many years Tasmanian law has prevented discrimination on the grounds of gender identity and that Tasmanian services, schools and businesses have had inclusive policies, without any negative consequences

Believe our community is stronger when it is inclusive, equal, and values the contributions of all its members

Support the creation of safe spaces for dialogue that allow for the free exchange of ideas, and are safe for all members of the community, including trans, non-binary, and gender diverse people.
