About the Movie

From award-winning director Maya Newell comes this groundbreaking documentary Gayby Baby, following the lives of four kids – Gus, Ebony, Matt and Graham – whose parents all happen to be gay. At a time when the world is questioning the politics of same-sex families, Gayby Baby takes us into the homes and personal dramas of four kids approaching puberty under the guidance of gay parents. In his all-female household, Gus strives to work out what it means to be a “man”; Ebony struggles to find her voice as a singer and a place where her gay family will be accepted; Matt questions how the God his lesbian mums worship can also damn them to hell; and Graham’s desire to read and win the approval of his dads is complicated by a move to Fiji, where homosexuality is frowned upon. Told from the point of view of the kids, Gayby Baby is a living, moving portrait of same-sex families that offers a refreshingly honest picture of what really counts in modern life.

Amazing insight from the kids...

I was lucky enough to attend a preview screening of the movie in early April and cannot say enough good things about it! I cried, I laughed, and I fell in love with every one of the kids in this film. It’s so special to get such a raw glimpse into the lives of kids raised by same-sex parents, through the kids themselves! As a hopeful future LGBT parent I can only hope more movies like this start telling the stories of these families. Gayby Baby is a groundbreaking film and shines a beautiful light on what family is really about.

Incredible film for EVERY FAMILY

Watching this film was such an amazing experience. GAYBY follows four kids raised by same-sex parents. We see everything through their eyes - their hopes, dreams, wishes and worries. This is a movie that anyone who believes in the power of family should not miss!

Powerful and perfect in tone

Very fun. Incredibly well crafted and sweet portrait of these four kids and their families. It avoids being too agenda driven, instead showing the kids stories of being kids. The themes are real, and you get a sense of the backdrop of having same-sex parents as something that these kids are all aware of at an early age. But the film shows their journeys with their own often hilarious adventures in just being kids. Would recommend this for anyone with kids or thinking about it.
