The difficult plebiscite process for same sex marriage in 2017 highlighted the enormous discrimination and ignorance faced by same sex couples. These challenges are often accentuated for same sex couples when they decide to start a family. In this program, we’ll explore the landscape of same sex parenting with renowned local psychotherapist and educator, Monique Rutherford. From starting a family, raising children and affirming relationship, same sex couples do this all on the backdrop of an often discriminative, heteronormative culture. Host Sean Tonnet speaks with Monique Rutherford about her lived and professional experience of the issues of same sex parenting.
