A happy problem: update for the So You Want to Make a Baby Seminar

ALERT: The venue for the seminar is likely to change

On 12 April I will be speaking at a seminar in Brisbane for how LGBTI people can become parents. The seminar is run with the assistance of the Queensland Aids Council and the LGBTI Legal Service.

Yesterday afternoon, still a month out, I was alerted that somehow all 100 tickets for the venue have been taken. The venue is full!

Don’t despair. I am told that there are still many who want to come. I don’t want them to miss out. We are organising, fingers crossed, another venue- and will advise as soon as it is known.
