LGBTI legal service supports QAHC rally tomorrow

Brisbane’s LGBTI legal service will stand shoulder to shoulder tomorrow to support the emergency rally to support the defunded Queensland Association for Healthy Communities.

Volunteers from the legal service, including co-ordinator Julie Howe, will be in attendance at the rally, to be held Wednesday 30 May at King George Square, Brisbane at 5pm.

Healthy Communities has been funded since inception with tackling HIV/AIDS prevention, but since the election of the Newman government, Health Minister Lawrence Springborg has removed that funding, asserting that healthy Communities has failed to tackle a raising infection rate in Queensland.

The rally has been called to protest that decision, and to say that Healthy Communities has support.

Disclosure: I am a volunteer at the LGBTI legal service. I will be in attendance at the rally tomorrow.
