Just.Equal Australia are asking LGBTIQA+ Australians about their top issues in the looming 2022 federal election.

The Morrison government hasn’t yet announced the date of the 2022 federal election. However the poll is due sometime in the first half of this year.

The national advocacy group has launched a survey asking LGBTIQA+ Australians and their allies what issues they most want Australia’s political parties to commit to.

Just.equal say the survey is open to Australians over the age of 18 and features questions covering a wide range of LGBTIQ+ issues.

The survey asks respondents about the level of priority they give each of the issues.

“Our survey allows LGBTIQA+ people to rank the issues that matter most to them,” spokesperson Dr Sharon Dane said.

“We then take these issues to the parties and candidates seeking their commitment.

“Having a set of community priorities sends a message to both politicians and community representatives that it’s not their role to decide what matters to the community, it’s the community’s role.”

Dr Dane said Just.Equal have conducted the community election surveys since the group formed in 2016.

“We believe the agenda for LGBTIQA+ law reform and policy development should be set democratically, by the community,” she said.

After the survey closes, Just.Equal will then send the results  to all political parties to get their responses.
