Earlier in the year Rainbow Families surveyed over 200 members of our community. We asked about issues they faced as LGBTIQ parents, particularly from the NSW government. The report was officially launched at Family Pride in May.
Rainbow Families has been invitedby the NSW Parliament friendship group of LGBTIQ people to present the findings of the report.
We are hoping to meet with all ministers and shadow ministers who have recommendations in the report to discuss the best ways of removing discrimination faced by LGBTIQ parents.
The Erskineville Playgroup will be having an excursion on the day to Parliament!! We are packing the crayons and colouring books and will set up a kids activity corner. After the official presentation is over, families will be asked to help deliver the report to MPs. This will be an invaluable opportunity for politicians to meet our families and hear personal stories from our community.
Rainbow Families is particularly proud of this report, and look forward to being part of a positive change for our families. We would love you to join us for this important event.
When: Thursday, 10 August, 10am to 11am
Where: Macquarie Room, Parliament of NSW
