Closing Doors On People
January 8 2018
The LWB was instrumental to my partner and I finding somewhere to live when we first arrived in QT. I love living here and especially love how multicultural it is in this town.
Most people coming to live here seem to be on the same sort of page and like-minded, no matter their nationality. Therefore I simply cannot understand why it is ok or relevant to specify on the accommodation ads which nationality they want the person to be when applying.
You all know what I’m talking about. The ‘Asian couple’ wanted kind of adverts. What’s wrong with other nationalities? I would never state ‘white western people only’ and if I did so, I would certainly expect a lot of complaints
In a place which is so open to people from around the world, I’d like to think that people living here are more accepting and non- judging of people wanting to move here and enjoy this beautiful place too.
Please stop closing doors on people purely based on their nationalities and be more welcoming and accepting instead.
