Speaker Biographies

Anna Brown, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Equality Australia


 Anna Brown OAM is a lawyer, advocate and founding CEO of Equality Australia, a national organisation dedicated to equality for LGBTIQ+ people. She played a critical role in the campaign for marriage equality, co-chairing the Equality Campaign and running the challenge to the postal plebiscite in the High Court, as Legal Director at the Human Rights Law Centre where she led the Centre's LGBTIQ rights work.

In these roles Anna has been instrumental in hard fought battles to fend off regressive religious discrimination laws, as well as successful campaigns to secure federal LGBTI discrimination protections, remove discriminatory laws across the country, right historical wrongs by establishing schemes to erase historical homosexual offences, prohibit conversion practices and remove barriers to accessing birth certificates. Anna’s legal work has helped to ensure that young trans people can access vital hormone treatment without the cost and delay of going to court, advanced marriage equality and furthered recognition of sex and gender diversity.
