Twenty-four percent of gay and lesbian couples in Australia are now raising a child. In the UK, USA and Europe, it’s even more. These kids are part of what can only be described as a ‘gayby-boom’. And yet, gaybies are a cultural phenomenon we know nothing about. So what is it like to grow up with same-sex parents? What unique challenges do gaybies face? And how does the global politics of marriage equality impact these kids in their day-to-day life?
Told from the perspective of the kids, Gayby Baby is a film about the experiences of the newest generation of gaybies, as well as a film about what family in the 21st century might mean to us all. In short, it’s a child’s eye view of our newest breed of family.
