SYDNEY’S OUT GAY MP GREENWICH THREATENS TO PULL SUPPORT FOR NSW GOVERNMENT OVER TRANS COMMENTS

 | 
4/22/22

Independent Sydney MP Alex Greenwich has warned the NSW’s minority Dominic Perrottet government that he would withdraw his support if the Premier continued to make comments against the transgender community. The Perrottet government, which does not have a majority in the NSW Parliament, relies on the support of Independents, including out gay MP Greenwich. The Sydney Morning Herald reported that Perrottet is likely to meet Greenwich and trans advocates next week. Premier Perrottet had earlier this week waded into the debate on trans sportspersons in female sports, while supporting Liberal candidate Katherine Deves. The Liberal candidate for the seat of Warringah has faced backlash for making homophobic and transphobic comments. Perrottet had told the media that his position on the issue of trans girls playing in female sports was that, “girls should play sport against girls and women should play sport against women.” The Premier had joined the Prime Minister in rejecting calls to sack Deves. “I have a very strong view that people should have rights to raise issues and have public debate without being cancelled. And I agree with what the Prime Minister said yesterday. I think Australians are sick of treading on eggshells,” Perrottet told media persons.
