Transgender soldier on fighting the Australian army’s attempt to dismiss her

Transgender soldier Bridget Clinch has opened up about how she fought against the Australian army after it tried to dismiss her following her gender reassignment surgery. When Clinch – who had served in the military for over a decade – told her bosses within the Australian Defence Force that she identified as a woman, she says she was given a termination notice. “I had a medical review and they said I had to leave,” she told 9news.com.au. “My fight was about getting the policy cancelled. It stated trans people have a psychiatric disorder and need to be kicked out of the military.”

The 79-year-old served as a High Court judge from 1996-2009 and has since been a vocal human rights advocate, especially on LGBTI rights.

He did consider marrying his partner after Australia legalized same-sex marriage in December last year, but thought it might be too late for them.

The Morrison government is split on whether to support Labor’s call to amend discrimination law to prevent religious schools firing gay staff.

The Liberal deputy leader, Josh Frydenberg, and candidate for Wentworth Dave Sharma backed Labor’s call but Scott Morrison refused to commit to extend his promise to prevent discrimination against students.

The report recommends new state laws prohibiting conversion therapy against minors, and prohibiting doctors, social workers and teachers from engaging in any activities that could constitute conversion therapy.

Despite this, as the nation continues to debate freedom of religion, Prime Minister Scott Morrison said the debate around gay conversion was “not an issue for him”.

When Elizabeth* first fell in love with Janie* nearly two decades ago, the future looked rosy. They built a home together and had two children.

But eight or nine years later, as the stresses piled up — the death of loved ones, the need to field the parenting opinions of their children’s biological fathers — Janie began subjecting the family to lashings of verbal abuse.

Sleeping in her car to escape the violence in her home, Claire Smith (not her real name) realised her situation was desperate enough to turn to a women’s shelter.

But the idea of having to explain to someone that she was running from her female partner stopped her.

Activists say domestic violence in the LGBTI community is under-reported, and there needs to be more appropriate and targeted support services for gay victims.

The Queensland Government has committed $155,000 towards training frontline workers to better respond to domestic violence callouts in the LGBTI community.

Family violence support services:

  • 1800 Respect national helpline 1800 737 732
  • Women’s Crisis Line 1800 811 811
  • Men’s Referral Service 1300 766 491
  • Lifeline (24 hour crisis line) 131 114
  • Relationships Australia 1300 364 277
