The Gay Parent

from the film "Little Boy/ Big Boy", an exploratory
narrativeon the joys of being a gay parent

If you are gay and you have a child, will you be honest enough to reveal your sexual preference to your child? If you plan to adopt a child, will the law recognize you, a gay man as a legitimate parent? If your child is sick, will your employer understand that you need to take a leave to take care of your child?

These are some of the difficult things, gay parents face on a daily basis.

Let me share an interesting article from the Philippine Daily Inquirer on this issue "When the Parent is Gay".

i'm proud about my sexuality ... but face the fact that being a gay person is not an easy thing ... We misjudged and discriminated by others ... pag nagka-baby na ako, gusto ko sa harap niya lalakeng-lalake ako ... hindi dahil sa kinakahiya ko ang pagiging bading ... ayaw ko lang na ma-impluwensiyahan ko siya sa aking pagiging bading dahil ayokong maranasan niya ang mga naranasan ko ...
