The lives of sexuality- and gender-diverse people around the world have, in recent years,changed dramatically. In some regions, political campaigns for social, criminal and legaljustice have been characterised by increasing visibility and popular support, coupledwith the removal of social inequalities and discrimination. However, in other regions,repression and discrimination have remained stable or even increased, and social gainshave been promptly followed by conservative backlash. After the achievement of marriageequality in Australia, for example, this backlash took the form of a Religious FreedomReview, which has sought to protect the religious ‘freedom’ to discriminate against sexuality-and gender-diverse people. In the United States of America, too, the Supreme Courtdecision on marriage equality was followed, not too long afterwards, with a ban on transgenderpeople entering the military, among other indicators of reducing acceptance ofsexuality and gender diversity (GLAAD, 2018).
