We understand that receiving this flyer could be distressing for residents especially those who identify as being part of the LBGTIQA+ community and their families. The flyer has the contact details for the association endorsing the information and call to action so anyone who has received the material in their mailbox and would like to complain could do so directly to this group or to the Australian Human Rights Commission.
