A Gender Agenda (AGA) works with the intersex, trans and gender diverse community. This includes intersex people, transgender people, people who cross-dress and other gender variant or gender non-conforming people. We acknowledge the important role that partners, family members and allies play and these people are specifically welcomed as part of our community.
AGA is a unique community organisation actively engaged in increasing public awareness and understanding of intersex, trans and gender diversity issues. In addition to training and education, we provide advocacy and support services, information and resources and are actively engaged in human rights and law reform.
AGA is a vibrant community of sex and gender diverse individuals, their families, friends and allies. We hold regular community gatherings with some events being open to the broader public.
What we believe
AGA operates from a human rights based framework, respecting and celebrating the uniqueness and diversity of human experiences. We believe that there is no ‘right’ way to be male or female, masculine or feminine and that all people are entitled to autonomy over their bodies, gender identity and gender expression. Anyone who is intersex, trans, gender non-conforming or who questions the binary categories of sex and/or gender is part of our community and we welcome them, their families, friends and allies.
How we work
AGA adopts a collaborative approach in all aspects of our work. We work from a strengths based model and seek to find and build on points of commonality with other sectors and service providers. We pride ourselves on continually resourcing our service with up to date information and knowledge to ensure we are providing the best possible supports to our community. It is also important for us to be articulating understandings of sex and gender identity in ways that ensure there is an awareness that these issues are fundamental issues that affect all of us.
