‘HepatitisWA is a community based health promotion provider and we advocate for the removal of any discriminatory barriers which may affect the health and wellbeing of people living with chronic viral hepatitis and the wider community in Western Australia. HepatitisWA is concerned for the wellbeing of people in the LGBTI+ community in the lead up to the proposed resolution of the marriage equality issue. Ongoing discrimination in any form often causes poor mental and physical health, and produces disparity in health outcomes. HepatitisWA supports marriage equality for all Australians, which we hope will diminish discrimination and improve the health and wellbeing of LGBTI people. Many opinions will be heard over this issue and we call for calm, respectful discussion’.
