The Queen to tackle the gender pay gap and discrimination


The queen’s speech reminds us how far Australia is behind. In an address to Parliament on Wednesday, Queen Elizabeth vowed to protect the LGBT community from discrimination, the first time that any mention of LGBTQ rights has been included in the Queen’s Speech.

“My government will make further progress to tackle the gender pay gap and discrimination against people on the basis of their race, faith, gender, disability or sexual orientation,” she said.

Maybe they forgot about us :/ Watch the full speech below
