It’s time to include LGBTQIA people in the 2026 Census

Every five years the ABS counts every person and household in the country. It’s the most comprehensive snapshot of our society, except when it comes to our communities.

Last month the ABS called for public submissions about topics that should be included in the 2026 Census, but one person decided that going through the same patterns of the past and expecting the same result wasn’t on.

Evalyn Venture started a very specific petition, not just because she wasn’t properly counted in the data as a transwoman, but because that’s the reality for so many of us.

She joined Rach & Dean on JOY Breakfast.
