UWA, don't host anti-LGBT hate on campus!

Quentin Van Meter will be speaking for the Australian Family Association on UWA campus this Friday 17th as part of a national tour.
As a UWA student doctor, and as a member of the LGBTIQA+ community, I'm disgusted to see UWA hosting Quentin Van Meter, president of the anti-LGBT American College of Pediatricians (a splinter group born from hate, unlike the actual American Academy of Pediatrics). This organisation shamelessly promotes their ultra-conservative agenda at the expense of the health and well-being of trans kids.
Like a wolf in sheep's clothing, and hosted by the equally dubious Australian Family Association - who consider marriage equality worthy of ridicule, and equivocal with pedophilia - this is misrepresentation at its best. I expect my university to see through this false façade and see this harmful, anti-science, anti-LGBT monstrosity for what it is.
UWA, do not host Quentin Van Meter on our campus. Do not do so if you have any moral backbone, if you care about the LGBTIQA+ staff and students at this university, or if you have ever flown the Pride flag with any conviction whatsoever.
