Australia’s federal Attorney-General, Nicola Roxon, and Minister for Finance and Deregulation, Penny Wong, will release a draft law to ban discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity.

An exemption that currently allows faith-based aged care providers to discriminate on the grounds of sexual orientation and gender identity would be removed, but other religious exemptions would continue.
