Pride In Protest organised a colourful and successful Mardi Gras march down Oxford Street, taking the event back to its protest roots, reports Rachel Evans and Oscar Bray.

Transgender rights activists protested outside Randwick Council against its transphobic policy relating to the McIver’s Ladies Baths, writes Rachel Evans and Oscar Bray.

Rachel Evans reports on a protest to mark Transgender Remembrance Day and oppose a transphobic bill being pushed by One Nation in NSW.

A COVID-19 safe rally against a transphobic bill that attracted several hundred people was shut down by police, writes Rachel Evans.

Mark Latham's bill aimed at erasing the lives of young gender diverse people could also be a stalking horse for other discriminatory bills, writes Paul Gregoire.

While the transphobes in the federal Coalition government have not given up on pushing their anti-trans agenda, they face some stiff challenges, according Transgender Victoria spokesperson Sally Goldner.

Last year’s marriage equality postal survey caused a lot of pain for the LGBTI community. But Goldner told Green Left Weekly that the overwhelming Yes vote helped push the homophobes and transphobes back.

While there have been some major legislative advances for LGBTI rights in Latin America, there is still much to be done, writes Erin Fiorini.

King Street, Newtown ground to a halt on April 23 as some 500 locals took to the street in protest at the rise in homophobic and transphobic violence in the area since the introduction of the lockout laws.
On April 8, US rock star Bruce Springsteen published the statement below on his website. *** As you, my fans, know I'm scheduled to play in Greensboro, North Carolina this Sunday. As we also know, North Carolina has just passed HB2, which the media are referring to as the “bathroom” law.
