Documentary allows children of same-sex parents to have their say

From people like Ryan Anderson of the Heritage Foundation, the only time we ever hear about same-sex parents and their children is when lies are spun about them. And then sometimes we don't hear about them at all. This is a cynical tactic designed to both demonize lgbts when it comes to children and render same-sex families invisible.

But they, as all people with dignity, refuse to be rendered negative or invisible. Particularly the children.

From the Huffington Post:

A groundbreaking new film is taking a compelling look at what it’s like to grow up with same-sex parents by speaking with those who are most intimately impacted by them: their kids. “Gayby Baby” follows four Australian children — Gus, Ebony, Matt and Graham — who just happen to have gay parents and explores the joys and unique challenges they each face.

That looks good. Thanks for letting us know about it. I will keep my eye out for it when it comes to the US.
I asked my son if growing up with a single gay mom was hard. He said his friends all knew and thought it was cool. He never suffered any teasing at school. He said he thinks it made him a more open person and more understanding of discrimination. I was so relieved to hear that. He did grow to be a fine man with a host of friends and is loved by everyone. I think I did a good job.
