Parenting

Conceiving Family
"Following the filmmaker's recent journey into parenthood, [the film] takes us inside the lives of five gay and lesbian couples who show the bravery, determination, and humor it takes to break through the legal systems, societal prejudices, and personal fears inherent in starting a family through adoption."

Daddy & Papa
"A documentary exploring the personal, cultural, and political impact of gay men who are making a decision that is at once traditional and revolutionary: to raise children themselves. Taking us inside four gay male families, this documentary traces the critical issues that inevitably intersect their private lives, the ambiguous place of interracial families in America, the wonder and precariousness of surrogacy and adoption, the complexities of marriage and divorce within the gay community, and the legality of their own parenthood."

Fatherhood Dreams

"Explores what it's like to grow up in a house with gay or lesbian parents, through interviews with sons and daughters of five families, all with different backgrounds, religious beliefs, and gender."

This Is Family
"Profiles the diversity of gay and transgender households today."
