Queensland Association for Healthy Communities (QAHC) has released ‘pledge cards’ in the lead-up to the Queensland election, calling on politicians to support LGBT equality.

QAHC will distribute the cards to LGBT people and their supporters across the state, encouraging them to give a card to every politician they see in the lead-up to the March 24 poll, which was announced by Premier Anna Bligh last week.

“We commonly receive feedback from politicians that no one ever raises LGBT issues with them,” QAHC executive director Paul Martin said.

“Handing politicians a ‘Speak Out for Equality’ card is a simple way for people to get LGBT issues on the agenda of candidates.”

The cards can be picked up from QAHC’s Brisbane, Cairns or Maroochydore offices or by contacting [email protected] or by calling 07 3017 1777.
