The Greens support this motion and all of its parts. In particular, we would have supported the addition of 'or gender identity' to 'sexual orientation'. All schools need to be safe for all students regardless of their sexual orientation and regardless of their gender identity. I am appalled that leave was not given in this chamber to allow Senator Hinch to add the words 'or gender identity' to his motion. It shows that there is an extreme level of transphobia in this chamber, which is completely appalling.
