Queer Spawn, a documentary

There are over ten milion children with gay or lesbian parents in the United States. Are their lives affected by their kind of family? From liberal New York City to conservative Texas, teenagers and their parents candidly share their experiences and insights.

Christopher is 12 years old, lives in Manhattan and has two dads. Kyle is 15, lives near Austin, TX, and has two moms. Their life experience has been very different because of the surroundings, as they and their parents candidly explain on camera while we get a glance of their everyday life.

The documentary also shows Family Week in Provincetown, the oldest annual meeting of families with lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender parents. Many other teenagers and young adults who attended the event talked about the consequences of having lesbian or gay parents. How do they talk about it with other kids? Which reactions do they have to face? Do they feel some kind of extra pressure? Are they gay themselves?
