Our head psychologist, Mary Magalotti said to The Age “it simply wasn’t good enough” when the Census forced same-sex couples to list the birthplace of biological mother/father of their children “despite [Mary’s children] having two mothers on their birth certificates”.
Here at Life Resolutions, we stand with Mary Magalotti. We are inspired to continue being actively inclusive of everyone no matter their background, identity or sexuality. Our Director, Jodie Brenton and our team of psychologists are passionate about providing support for everyone, including those in the LGBTQ+ community.
Mary points out that the census is “supposed to provide crucial insights into our changing society” however, not allowing same-sex couples to accurately provide answers defeats the purpose of these questions. These questions are also discriminatory and disrespectful to the individuals and families in the LGBTQ+ community.
Mary said she “felt distressed for my children who weren’t represented,” and the questions were “biased and discriminatory”. The LGBTQ+ community have fought hard to be included and received respect, especially from the Australian Government. Here at Life Resolutions, we believe that we should continue to take a stand against discrimination to ensure equality and respect for everyone.
Mary Magalotti and our team of psychologists are passionate about providing support for everyone, especially those in the LGBTQ+ community. Jodie Brenton works to ensure these services are accessible to everyone in the community. The Life Resolution team strive to ensure all members of the community feel included and respected.
Lead by Mary Magalotti, our team of psychologists are experienced in working with those within the LGBTQ+ community and understand the challenges that they may face.
