It is possible to enable IPv6 for your bridges ORPort.

Like this for example:

ORPort 443
ORPort [2a02:c207:3002:5060::1]:443

The first entry enables your IPv4 ORPort, the second does it for IPv6. You 
need to manually enter your server's reachable IPv6 address there.

As you can see here, there a many bridges with an IPv6 ORPort:
