Latest release

Rainbow family

We are excited to launch a new rainbow family commemorative birth certificate. The design celebrates the diversity of NSW and is a special way for people to celebrate the birth of a new family member and rainbow families of all shapes and sizes.

The Registry worked with the Rainbow Family Association to find an artist to create a meaningful and contemporary design that would appeal to the LGBTIQA+ community.

Sydney-based artist, illustrator and animator Monica Higgins (she/her) was selected for her contemporary and colourful designs. The certificate artwork uses bright pride colours to illustrate native animals as rainbow families enjoying themselves among iconic Sydney Iandmarks.  

Ms Higgins will also pledge $1 from the sale of each Rainbow commemorative birth certificate to Twenty10, who work with people across Sydney and New South Wales who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and gender diverse, non-binary, intersex, questioning, queer, asexual and more (LGBTIQA+) people and others of diverse genders and sexualities, their families and communities.
