Co-hosted by Rainbow Families NSW, join co-authors Maya Newell & Gus Skattebol-James for the launch of Wrestle!, with a reading by Benjamin Law!

Wrestle! is inspired by the documentary Gayby Baby, which featured the stories of four incredible kids, each being raised in LGBTQIA+ families. One of those kids was Gus. Audiences fell in love with Gus’s story and his undying passion for wrestling. Gayby Baby director Maya Newell and producer Charlotte Mars have joined forces with Gus again, along with illustrator Tom Jellett, to create a very lovable picture book about going against the grain and following your passions – even when both of your mums disagree!

"Big hearted, bold and beautiful. For any parent who knows there is no ‘right way’ to make a family, and for any kid who knows there is no ‘right way’ to be yourself." – Benjamin Law.
