Movie Review: Gayby Baby

Gayby Baby is a documentary about four Australian children -- Gus, Ebony, Matt and Graham -- being raised by gay or lesbian parents. It was directed by a woman who was raised by lesbians. The documentary's point of view is the children's view not the parent's view. It is clearly not directed with a directed political aim. We learn about how children move through the throws of childhood and adolescence live in the circumstance of same-sex parents. The answer: about the same.

I found the story of Graham, who has some developmental learning problems related to his birth parents, the most interesting. It may have been complicated by the fact that his dads move to Fiji -- which is not particularly open about same-sex relationships. Graham shows resilience.
