    This is what the liberal government is doing wrong.

    It needs to do important stuff like this.

    Good to see Danny getting on with managing Victoria.


    Victoria's Pride March in a show of respect for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex community.

    Mr Andrews said the Labor government would review all state legislation that unfairly discriminates against the LGBTI Victorians and leading the march was a gesture of respect.

    'The Labor Government is putting equality back on the agenda and we won't rest until everyone in this state is free to be who they are,' Mr Andrews said.

    Mr Andrews will be the first Victorian Premier to lead the march - now in its 20th year.

    The Labor government has also pledged to amend the Equal Opportunity Act to limit religious exemptions, review adoption laws and remove discrimination and extend the Safe Schools Coalition program to every state high school.

    The Pride March is a celebration of Victoria's LGBTI communities and a collective declaration of support for equality and respect.

    Minister for Equality Martin Foley said LGBTI Victorians still suffer discrimination.

    'Families and relationships aren't valued equally under the law and proper recognition is yet to be achieved,' Mr Foley said.
