New LGBTI legal service in Brisbane

An LGBTI community legal service has been incorporated in Brisbane. The purpose of the service is primarily to provide assistance to LGBTI people by advice sessions on a week night by volunteer lawyers, such as me, with links to appropriate counselling.

The service will launch in the next month or so, will be entirely staffed by volunteers (as it is unfunded) and will operate initially in the offices of QAHC (Queensland Association for Healthy Communities – formerly the Queensland AIDS Council) at Newstead.

It is expected that the service will also act as an advocate for legal change to remove legal barriers faced by LGBT people.

I am hoping to support the service, which will be a welcome addition to community legal centres in Brisbane.
