Director Maya Newell and Producer Charlotte Mars appeared in person to talk about the universal qualities of family, the pure perspectives of children, and how Australian laws and society still have a long way to go towards LGBT acceptance.
Gayby Baby is a gripping portrait of four Australian kids – Gus, Ebony, Matt and Graham – whose parents all happen to be gay. As they each wrestle with their own unique challenges, the outside world wrestles with the issue of marriage equality, and whether or not kids like them are at risk. Gayby Baby is a rare feature documentary told from the perspective of kids in gay and lesbian families. The film is a microcosm of what children in samesex marriages experience across the globe.
