So it isn’t a surprise that Brenna Harding is an LGBT rights activist in Australia, being the daughter of two lesbian mothers. In 2012 she became president of the gay rights movement Wear it Purple. She is the co-author, along with her mother Vicki of the book The Rainbow Cubby House, which tells the story of Harding and her two homosexual mothers.
In fact, when the Puberty Blues star accepted her award for Most Popular New Female Talent, Brenna Harding sobbed with joy and praised her proud parents, saying: “I especially have to thank two women – my beautiful mothers.”

She was just 16 years old, but in all of her 16 years she was famous as Aussies have heard about Brenna’s family – back in 2004, her 2 mothers were featured on TV’s Play School, sparking umbrage among those not supportive of same-sex parenting.
