Isabelle & Naomi McNamara
Advocates for transgender rights
Isabelle and her family first told their story on ABC’s ground-breaking Four Corners program ‘Being Me’.
The story had a profound impact and began a wider public discussion about transgender children and the legal obstacles they face. Naomi and Isabelle spoke at Parliament House, Canberra in 2016 about their experiences, their fears around the Family Court process and their plea for understanding and action. They also attended a Parliamentary sitting in Canberra with their local member, Cathy McGowan to highlight these issues.
Naomi and Isabelle speak eloquently and from the heart about the impact of discrimination as well as the impact of the right support at the right time.
