Casting Call!


How are gay families different from heterosexual families? Do children of gay and lesbian couples grow up as successfully as children raised in heterosexual families? Is good parenting influenced by sexual orientation? It is estimated that the number of children nationwide living with at least one gay parent ranges from six to 14 million. These families were born of heterosexual marriages where a parent has since come out, have come together through adoption, or are biologically related, but no matter what the vehicle, their existence is undeniable and is forever altering the traditional definition of “family”.

The 90 minute documentary follows the daily lives of these families who are facing the usual situations that most families deal with. We are setting out to provide an opportunity for people to learn about these families and create an insightful exploration of challenges and joys of family life in a lesbian or gay household. The film will be presented to LOGO and other big networks, also including film festivals

If you are interested in your family participating in any capacity and would like more info, please send an email to d_pasquella@yahoo.com . This documentary will be taken in the New York area.

EDIT: We’re also welcoming fundamentalists’ views on what they think about homosexual families. So, if you’re a fundamentalist Christian or totally against homosexuality in general, please email me if you’d like to be apart of this project.
