By Dr Christopher Pepin-NeffAs Australia celebrates the 2022 International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia, Interphobia & Transphobia (IDAHOBIT) on Tuesday, 17 May, another day looms large, the May 21 federal election.

Together, these days represent an important statement about where the LGBTQI community is going in 2022 and beyond as we face a resurgence of hate-fueled stigma.

Now Peter Dutton stands in the wings to inherit the Prime Minister role from Scott Morrison if the Coalition is re-elected. The Religious Discrimination Bill will also certainly pass and become the law of the land and will harm transgender Australians.

On the other side of politics is the Labor Party, which has demonstrated a limited degree of backbone on LGBTQI issues. Recognising the important amendments that were proposed to protect LGBTQI youth, Labor still danced with the Liberals on the idea of the need for a Religious Discrimination Bill in the first place.
