Gay people are most of the time looked at strangely, because people who judge them do not understand their perspective. Their student, professional and personal lives are affected by suspicion, harassment, and discrimination. And when they decide to have a baby, all these negative perceptions on their life accentuate and intensify. Opponents of lesbian and gay people claim that their children are prone to developing negative mental patterns, habits, and behaviors. Children of same-sex couples are prone to judgment, discrimination, and...
gay family

Yesterday, the U.S. State Department appealed a Ninth Circuit court decision granting birthright citizenship to Ethan Dvash-Banks, the child of a same-sex bi-national couple living in Los Angeles, California. The Trump administration is saying that a child born to an American father is not in fact American and shouldn’t be allowed on U.S. soil. If the administration gets its way, the Dvash-Banks family will effectively be torn apart. And what’s worse, this isn’t the only same-sex family the Trump administration...

Tom Daley wants you to know that he doesn’t care what people think of him becoming a dad. The 23-year-old Olympic medal-winning diver was met with a barrage of hate when he and husband Dustin Lance Black announced earlier this year that they were having a baby boy together via surrogacy. While a Daily Mail columnist questioned where the mother was and asked readers “please don’t pretend two dads is the new normal”, controversy-courter Katie Hopkins tweeted that their “one-click baby”...

Ricky Martin's seemingly idea gay life - exemplified by his iconic spread in Architectural Digest in which he, his husband Jwan Yosef, and their two adorable sons appear as the epitome of aspirational gaydom - comes with a past of self-doubt and internalized homophobia. On the outside, when Martin rose to fame in the late 90's, he was Livin' la Vida Loca. But on the inside Martin was suffering from the pressures of an industry that had not yet...

A couple days ago, I posted an article explaining that gay marriage is not the anti-thesis of marriage (as one internet troll announced). In that post, I also shared some wonderful posts celebrating gay marriage, gay love, and gay parenting. That said, I realized that there is always room for more posts focusing on these topics, so that’s what this post is trying to do. But what’s better than just talking about how gay parents are great? Showing you. And thanks...
