PHA Statement of support for LGBTIQ community
Professional Historians Australia is proud to stand alongside our lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, queer, and gender queer (LGBTIQ+) members, clients, and the wider LGBTIQ+ community to support marriage equality in Australia.
Australia’s history is diverse, as are our relationships. PHA recognises the work that LGBTIQ+ Australians contribute to the preservation, interpretation and dissemination of history; and believe that all Australians possess the right to be seen as equals in the eyes of the law, free of prejudice and discrimination.
PHA encourages all our membership and affiliated organisations to support our LGBTIQ+ colleagues and to provide a safe and inclusive environment for them to continue their work. We wish to affirm our support of our LGBTIQ+ members, and advocate the maintenance of anti-discrimination legislation to protect all members of our community.
