Up to half of young people were likely to be same-sex-attracted, Safe Schools creator Roz Ward claimed at a recent forum where she spoke in defence of the controversial program, despite having severed ties with it three months ago.
Ms Ward, who managed the Safe Schools Coalition Victoria until the state government took it over in March, has been on an unofficial roadshow promoting the program regardless, and was due to brief clinicians at the state’s newest children’s hospital last week before withdrawing.
She also has left La Trobe University, which suspended her for alleged misconduct last year before reinstating her following legal threats, announcing the move on social media on June 8.
Speaking at a Victoria University event organised for Pride Week last month, Ms Ward took aim at conservative politicians, academics and the Murdoch press (which includes The Australian), blaming them for the controversy over sexual and gender diversity program.
