LGBTQ+ activists plan to hold a demonstration in Sydney's Taylor Square on Saturday, October 10, to denounce proposed laws which they allege will affect transgender students and allow discrimination against the LGBTQ+ community in New South Wales. Participants are expected to gather in the square from 13:00 (local time) and the event is likely to be well attended. Police have tried unsuccessfully to obtain a court order to ban the gathering over coronavirus disease (COVID-19) concerns.
A heightened security presence is expected in the vicinity of the demonstration and localized transport disruptions are likely around the square during the protest.
Those in Sydney are advised to monitor the situation, avoid the demonstration as a precaution, and heed instructions issued by local authorities.
