Thanks so much for coming by to check out Episode 142 of The New Family Podcast where we take a closer look at the lives of children raised by same-sex parents.
This is the second of two very special episodes of the podcast tied to Pride Month. We’re in a so-called Gayby Boom, given that more same-sex couples are having families than ever before. Yet, curiously absent from the conversation about this are the voices of the kids raised by two moms or two dads.
Australian filmmaker Maya Newell, herself brought up by two moms, decided to do something about that. Her film, Gayby Baby, follows four children from different sex-same parent families and offers an intimate account of their lives. In this episode, we get a taste of those stories, plus the perspective of Maya and other adult children of same-sex parents about what it was like to be among the first cohort raised by queer parents who were out and proud. You can catch Gayby Baby on TVO Saturday, June 24 at 8 p.m. and 12:30 a.m. or on tvo.org.
Here are some resources related to my discussion with Maya.
