HRC Family Project, Nov. 19, 2006

The New York Times Magazine featured a lengthy cover story about lesbians and gay men having children and forming families together. The article focuses primarily on the roles of the gay men in these families. Some of the featured families are living as they originally intended, with the men serving in roles ranging from full-time dad to involved donor. The article also highlights challenges that may arise. Some of the men interviewed wanted to be full partners in parenting and are instead more like distant uncles others wanted to play a limited role but are drawn into deeper parental engagement by changing circumstances.
