Daddy & Papa: Gay Couples Raising Children

TUE, MAY 13, 2003 (32:19)

Johnny Symons discusses his film Daddy & Papa, a one-hour documentary that takes us inside the lives of four families led by gay men.

America is in the midst of a "gayby boom," with thousands of gay men across the country making the decision to raise children. An exploration of the personal, cultural, and political impact of gay fatherhood, this new film traces day-to-day challenges as it examines the value of alternative households, the effects of gender and sexual orientation on children, and the changing face of the American family.
