"Any child can be born gay. So marriage equality is every family's issue."

A pregnant woman who is "having a lesbian" stars in a new campaign to promote marriage equality.

The billboard, which is also accompanied by a YouTube video titled What R U having?, features a woman baring her pregnant stomach in a hospital bed with the slogan: "Congratulations, you're having a lesbian."

The campaign was launched yesterday by Parents & Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLG), while the billboard has been put up in Brisbane at Bowen Hills.

The YouTube clip shows the woman getting an ultrasound with her partner beside her as the doctor asks them if they'd like to know what they're having.

"You're having a lesbian," the doctor tells the overjoyed parents.

The campaign's theme is that: "Any child can be born gay. So marriage equality is every family's issue."

Spokeswoman for PFLG Shelley Argent told News Limited the campaign was designed to build support for gay marriage on the grounds that gay children were "born that way".

"Being a lesbian or gay is not a choice," she said.

"It's just the way you are."

Billboard giant GOA has donated space for the ads in Queensland, the report said.

GOA managing director Chris Tyquin said he would ask interstate billboard companies to donate space as well.
