New research shows overwhelming support among Australians for transgender Australians.

A poll from YouGov commissioned by Equality Australia in July 2020 with a representative sample of 1,026 Australians aged 18 and older found the following:

- 78 per cent of Australians agree that trans people deserve the same rights and protections as other Australians (57 per cent strongly agree).
- 66 per cent of Australians agree that religious school should not be able to fire someone or expel a student for being transgender.
- 66 per cent of Australians agree that young people should be able to access healthcare supporting them to live as themselves.

"Everyone is entitled to access healthcare, education and the services they need with dignity and without discrimination. Our research again confirms Australians are fair-minded and decent, and overwhelmingly back equality for trans Australians," Equality Australia CEO Anna Brown says.
