Love Makes a Family
Gay Parents in the 90's
By Daniel Veltri, Remco Kobus & Marla Leech
Our concepts of family have been undergoing radical changes: More women are working, and more men are getting involved in childcare and parenting. More children are growing up in single parent families. And we are learning that some families are, and always have been, composed of gay parents and their children.
In this video, we meet a lesbian single mother who shares parenting with the gay father of her son; a lesbian couple who care for one's children by a previous marriage; and a gay male couple with two adopted sons. Also interviewer are a clinical psychologist and a therapist who works with gay families.
