2015 | TBC | 85 mins | DCP | Australia | D: Gillian Maya Newell
At a time when the world is questioning the politics of same-sex families, Gayby Baby takes us into the homes and personal dramas of four kids approaching puberty under the guidance of gay parents.
In his all-female household, Gus strives to work out what it means to be a 'man'; Ebony struggles to find her voice as a singer and a place where her gay family will be accepted; Matt questions how the God his lesbian mums worship can also damn them to hell; and Graham's desire to read and win the approval of his dads to complicated by a move to Fiji, where homosexuality is frowned upon.
Told from the point of view of the kids, Gayby Baby is a living, moving portrait of same-sex families that offers a refreshingly honest picture of what really counts in modern life.
