Choosing Children

Choosing Children

An emotionally powerful documentary that challenges society's definitions of family by exploring the ways lesbians are becoming parents and how they are raising their children.

Choosing Children is a film about families. It speaks to the LGBT community about ways to bring children into our families, and speaks to the straight community about the obstacles and joys faced by lesbian parents. It is invaluable to social workers, healthcare workers, judges and others who work with lesbian or gay-headed families.

Choosing Children has been a useful resource for university courses in women’s studies, gay and lesbian studies, family life and sexuality, civil rights, and social movements.

Family-law and gay-rights organizations, adoption agencies and organizations providing support to new parents have found the stories in Choosing Children to be inspiring models of the myriad of options available to all families.
