ALMA-galfa Grant Recipient Announced
Kristine Rowe (l) and Dr Ruth McNair (r)

The Australian Lesbian Medical Association (ALMA) and the Gay and Lesbian Foundation of Australia (GALFA) are pleased to announce the recipient of our 2013 joint grant round.

After careful consideration a grant of $6,000 has been awarded to Lesbian Parenting Australia Inc President Kristine Rowe for the development of a website.

This website will be a national resource for LGBTIQ women wanting to start a family. It will provide information, community links and other regularly updated resources to help prospective parents understand their fertility, donor issues, the law, parenting options and much more. It will also include personal stories of women who have successfully negotiated their path to parenting.

Ruth commented that “the website will provide a centralised resource for same-sex attracted women around Australia. This is the first time that this important information will be so readily available on a national basis”.

If you would like to make a tax deductible donation to galfa please go to the website:

ALMA proudly operates the DocList, a list of doctors, dentists and psychologists in each state and territory who have been recommended by lesbian and bisexual women as LBQ sensitive
