Paul Hunt started this petition to Pride WA

This week, Perth City Council Lord Mayor Basil Zempilas (voted into power on less than 15% of the electoral roll/vote) showed his "true colours" and said there's no such thing as a transgender person or gender diverse person. Well. Words to that effect. 

Let's move the City of Perth PrideFest from its current home to the City of Vincent, a more progressive and stable part of Perth. It's as simple as signing the petition, and sharing it with mates.

Here's the transcript from 6PR Breakfast on Wednesday 28 October 2020.

Steve Mills: The world's first LGBTQ+ boxing tournament is set to be staged in Sydney in 2023 after the nation's governing body threw its support behind the proposal.

Basil Zempilas: Wow.

Steve Mills: There's a woman in the paper today, a model of some description, who's having a child and she said ... they asked her is she having a boy or a girl? And she said, 'I won't know that until the child turns 18. '

Basil Zempilas: Right.

Steve Mills: Then they can identify themselves as a boy or a girl.

Basil Zempilas: But Steve, how do you get through until you're 18 by doing that? If the child's got an old fella, that's gonna might get a little difficult for that, that that person's trying to get into the ladies cubicles and the like. I mean, at school I don't know that they're going to be...

Steve Mills: Well that's the new era Basil, get into it. It's the new era. If I subscribe to being a girl I'm a girl.

Basil Zempilas: No you don't. No. Wrong. Wrong. If you've got a penis mate, you're a bloke. If you've got a vagina, you're a woman. Game over. Steve Mills 00:59 Not necessarily. No, it's not game over.

Basil Zempilas: Well, mate if you want to go softy lefty, namby pamby.

Steve Mills: I'm not going softy lefty. I am just saying what others will say. There's a group of people....

Basil Zempilas: Who? Who will say that? Anyone listening to us?

Steve Mills: A minority in the community that will say they do not subscribe to that, just because you've got a penis doesn't make you a boy.

Basil Zempilas: Let's try this. This will be good fun on 6PR. Alright Steve, 9221 1882. If you're listening to us this morning, you have a penis but your're a woman, call us now. 9221 1882. I've got a $100 Retravision voucher to give away. pennies with his Penny please state your credentials.
