Gay Dads

Through the research and production stages of this film I am reminded time and again of the plights, fights and struggles of Lesbian mothers, however, research and discussion on Gay Dads is still fairly limited, and although I make no claims that the film I am making will cover every type of child with Lesbian and Gay parents – I feel it is important that they get as much exposure and understanding – there was a great article in the Observer in October by Rebecca Seal entitled “The rise of the gay dad: Having two dads isn’t as unusual as it used to be. Rebecca Seal meets the generation of young, gay men who are re-inventing the world of adoption”. However, most kids with Gay parents through adoption are still too young to talk about it in a reflective way, if there is anyone out there aged 14-30 ish with Gay dads that would like to talk with me about their experiences on camera I would be most grateful.
