Leading charity announces lesbian mums as ambassadors for mother of the year

Professor Kerryn Phelps AM and wife Jackie Stricker-Phelps have been chosen by Barnados Australia as 2013 Mother of the Year Ambassadors.

Kerryn and Jackie have been strong campaigners for the rights and well being of LGBTIQ Australians.

Rainbow Families Queensland is very excited to see a leading charity nominate a lesbian couple as their ambassadors for Mother of the Year!

Barnados public support for Jackie and Kerryn adds further weight to the growing support and acknowledgement of our families and children in the Australian community.

Wouldn’t it be great if a mum who is lesbian, bisexual, transgender or intersex was nominated for the award?
