Arwen and Her Daddies

Parenting
New Gay-friendly Children’s Book on Adoption by Two Daddies:  “Arwen and Her Daddies” “It’s beautiful, timely, simple, warm and just what the world needs to see. Spread the love.” Isaiah Washington, actor Today a remarkable new children’s book has been published: ‘Arwen and her Daddies’ by Dutch author and adoptive father Jarko De Witte van Leeuwen. Copies can exclusively be purchased through www.feel-good-families.com. It is the story of the interracial adoption of Arwen, an African American girl born in New York City, by her Dutch gay daddies.

Not in Dr. King’s Name

News
Christian Leaders Unite on Political Issues - Citing the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s call to civil disobedience, 145 evangelical, Roman Catholic and Orthodox Christian leaders have signed a declaration saying they will not cooperate with laws that they say could be used to compel their institutions to participate in abortions, or to bless or in any way recognize same-sex couples. I can not imagine that Dr. King would have been pleased.  He never would have advocated to oppress a group of individuals, the way these so called Christian Leaders are trying to do.  And to do so with lies.  Many legal scholars argue that the passage of such protections would never force them to marry gays or participate in abortions.  These religious intuitions are protected by the First…

Gay Family Values

Parenting
Recently, we had a chance to chat with Jay and Bryan of Gay Family Values Fame. Tell us about life pre-videos. Pre-video's - we were just living family life then. Shortly before we began making videos there was the whole prop 8 disaster. It was our frustration over that event...and the complete lack of visibility of gay families that led to making those videos. Tell us about your family. This November 4th marks 14 years together - 1 legally married...What a date to have an anniversary eh? (Referencing the defeat of the Maine Marriage Equality Measure).  It’s also my birthday... Aww Happy Birthday - nice birthday present 14 years ago, eh? The best...only one other comes close and that’s when the kids came to live with us - Daniel (9)…

How did we tell the Kids?

Film, Parenting
We started making "Gay Family Values" videos as a response to prop 8 here in Ca. These videos have been a huge hit. We have come to understand that the reason these videos are so popular is that people don't get to see what it means to be a gay couple in a long term relationship raising children. Our family is no better and no worse then any other family. We have been getting lots of questions about our family and in the past we would respond to every email we received. We have decided to open our family up to questions you may have Questions this week - 1. Why Daddy Jay & Daddy Bryan? 2. How did we explain to Daniel & Selena about us being gay? &…
