There are still some legal inequities for LGBTI people, which is why it’s important to understand your legal rights and the significance of documentation. Changes to legislation in 2013 have made it unlawful for any provider of aged care services, who is a recipient of federal funding, to discriminate against anyone on the grounds of their sexual orientation, gender identity or intersex status. This applies to all service providers, regardless of whether they are faith based or secular.
