HUMAN Rights Commissioner Tim Wilson has begun an online survey as part of his ongoing consultation process to explore key rights issues affecting the Australian LGBTI community.

Wilson is also the Australian Human Rights Commission’s spokesperson on sexual orientation, gender identity and intersex (SOGII) rights.

The online survey aims to determine what legal protections exist and along with remaining legal obstacles, establish what services are provided and what are not, and what else is needed to be achieved to improve the lives of LGBTI people.

The survey will be bolstered by a number of meetings and community forums with LGBTI groups, organisations and individuals that Wilson has organised across the country in the past year.

However, participants only have until December 23 to complete the survey.

A report would eventually be published to provides a map of current and future challenges, as well as recommendations for positive change.

The outcomes would also inform Wilson in the area of SOGII rights in his tenure as Human Rights Commissioner.
