 (February 2018)  Gay parents are gaining increased visibility.  In addition to facing all of the issues and having to learn all the new skills that any heterosexual parents have to, gay parents have to deal with unique situations such as overcoming the challenges of conception, surrogacy, or adoption.

On this edition, OutCaster Jamie speaks with Gabriel Blau, an LGBTQ advocate and nonprofit consultant, about his and his husband’s personal experiences as gay parents and their experiences with adoption and finding an accepting community.  Gabriel is a member of our Advisory Council.

This is the first part of an OutCasting series on gay parenting.  The second part features James Howe, a well-known author, who, unlike Gabriel, became a father in a heterosexual marriage and came out during the course of his marriage.
