Reading now: 383

Victoria may have some of the more progressive laws in Australia for the LGBTQI community, but it has one of the lowest representation of out MPs in the state Parliament.

Just around 1.6 per cent of members of Parliament  in Victoria identify as LGBTQI,  as opposed to 16 per cent in ACT and 11 per cent in Western Australia.

Northern Territory, NSW and SA have around 4 per cent, 3.7 per cent and 2.9 per cent of MPs who identity as LGBTQI respectively.

There are eight out gay, lesbian and bisexual MPs in the federal Parliament after the May 2022 elections.Only Queensland and Tasmania fare worse than Victoria – there is not a single out LGBTQI MP in these states.
