Woman vilified by neighbour for her sexuality

February 2020

Padma* received a letter from her neighbour that contained offensive homophobic content.

The neighbour also made public comments that were derogatory about Padma’s sexuality.

Padma lodged a complaint with ADNSW as she believed his actions vilified people from the LGBTIQ community.

At conciliation, the neighbour admitted fault and expressed deep regret about the situation.

He wrote a letter of apology to Padma, acknowledging his homophobic behaviour. This apology was accepted by Padma and resolved the complaint.

*Name has been changed to protect the privacy of the individual.
