Gayby Baby

milkboys Films, Films & Cinema 16 Comments

“Australia is in the midst of a gayby-boom. Twenty-four percent of gay and lesbian couples are now raising a child and their queer spawn are invisibly roaming Australian streets and schools.

In the 70s and 80s, when same-sex marriage and IVF for lesbian mothers was just a pipe dream, some decided not to wait on progress, but to create it. These first generation gaybies have grown-up, and together with an increasing number of gayby children they’re a cultural phenomenon we know nothing about. Who are they? And what is it like to grow up with same-sex parents?

While most kids are grappling with the idea of Man + Woman = Baby, gaybies are fluent in IVF technologies. They are well versed on how to hide their families, see a very different side to sexual discrimination, and it is largely unrecognized that gaybies have to ‘come out’ too. The documentary will explore what our schools are teaching kids about “family”, what exactly is a ‘father figure’ and are they important? And how does a teenager complain about their parents when they’re always trying to prove their family has a right to exist?

Gayby Baby will follow the newest generation of gaybies as they speak openly about their woes and passions; what’s great about their family, and whats not. For some of them, being a gayby doesn’t matter at all, while for others its, at times an uncomfortable reality.”
