The Special Commission of Inquiry into LGBTIQ hate crimes (the Inquiry) will hold its final public sitting tomorrow, Tuesday 14 November 2023, in Sydney. Led by the Honourable Justice John Sackar (the Commissioner), the Inquiry has looked into all the unsolved deaths of LGBTIQ people (or people presumed to be LGBTIQ) that may have been hate crimes between 1970 and 2010. The final report will be handed to the NSW Governor by 15 December 2023. For the last eighteen months, a team of independent barristers, solicitors and investigators have combed through more than 150,000 documents drawn from 40 years of police files, coronial files, and other sources in relation to LGBTIQ hate-related deaths.
