The next protest against One Nation MP Mark Latham’s anti-LGBTQI bills is scheduled for June 5, at the Town Hall in Sydney. The protests against the bills are building momentum, with a steady amount of pressure being applied by April Holcombe, co-convenor of Community Action for Rainbow Rights (CARR) and the CARR group itself, against the worrying procession of the LGBTQI rights eroding bills.
Holcombe successfully disrupted the start of a two-day hearing at the NSW Parliament on the morning of the 20th April, standing up and demanding to be heard, ignoring an isolated shout of “sit down” from an attendee of the hearing and finishing their piece, as reported by the Star Observer at the time, “How dare you sit there and try to oversee the rolling back of our rights, rolling them back by decades, trying to attack the most vulnerable people in our society,” Holcombe stood up and called out to Latham. “Transgender young people have already got it tough enough.”
