Mia Mala MacDonald: Once Upon A Lullaby - Hardcover


  • Once in a Lullaby is Mia Mala McDonald’s long-awaited book of photographic portraits and interwoven stories of Australian LGBTQIA+ families
  • The contributions shared by participants are reflections on the politics of family, the complex processes of having children, family, loss, love, and what it is to be human. The book is as much about what it means to be an Australian as it is about sexuality
  • The project was born of a frustration felt by Mia during the 2017 Australian marriage plebiscite. She was deeply saddened to witness the negative conversations around rainbow families and their children
  • This project speaks directly to Mia’s identification with these families and to the overwhelming absence of such images in the mainstream Australian media
