Because Green values are fundamentally inspired and informed by the vision of a truly inclusive society, country and world free of anti-LGBT prejudice and discrimination, and recognise the very real and often major contributions LGBTQI+ community members bring to our nation, society, and the world in so many ways.

Our policy comprises a set of 20 specific thematic items orientated on practical deliverable implementation that will progressively realise full equality and inclusion for all sections of our LGBTQI+ community (including more isolated/vulnerable/disempowered ones), and powerfully assist the crucially important phenomenon of LGBTQI+ ‘Allyship.’ Our policy -- grounded in both relevant research and LGBTQI+ community Voice insights that recognise existing challenges to and opportunities for meaningful LGBTQI+ inclusion -- is based on the belief that a general society and a country that are truly LGBTQI+ and broader diverse and minorities inclusive are more contented, successful, prosperous, and self-confident.
