Liberal National Coalition
The Coalition have at both a state and federal level consistently opposed radical sexual orientation and gender identity programs being taught in schools.
Australian Labor Party
The Labor Party has been one of the largest proponents in favour of radical sexual orientation and gender identity programs being taught in primary schools.
The ALP’s National Platform states:
“Labor will continue to support national programs to address homophobia, biphobia, transphobia and anti-intersex prejudice in schools. This includes ensuring gender diverse students are able to express the gender they identify with.”
The Australian Conservatives believe that programs like Safe Schools and Respectful Relationships are political propaganda and indoctrination.
They believe sexual orientation and gender identity programs are wholly inappropriate for a school environment and are committed to their removal.
The Greens are in favour of radical sexual orientation and gender identity programs being taught in schools.
They advocate for schools to celebrate diversity and want school staff to be equipped with the skills they need to support particularly those students we know are more vulnerable to bullying. The Greens believe programs like Safe Schools are important to change attitudes at schools and providing protective factors.
