LGBTIQ ADVOCATES LAUNCH CAMPAIGN TO DIRECT DONATIONS TO VARIOUS BUSHFIRE FUNDRAISING EFFORTS
Just.equal has urged LGBTIQ Australians and their families and allies to contribute to any of the many verified bushfire relief funds that have been established to support the Australian community in this unprecedented crisis.
