CNN's Gary+Tony Have A Baby

By Tony Adams

With JMG, I attended a preview of a CNN show Gary + Tony Have A Baby to be aired June 24 at 8PM ET/PT in which reporter Soledad O'Brien tracks two gay men, Tony Brown and Gary Spino, who spend a small fortune for an egg donor and a surrogate mother.

A panel discussion after the screening involved (left to right in the photo) Jarrett Barrios President of GLAAD, Tony Brown, Gary Spino and Soledad O'Brien, all of whom are raising children.

There was a general predisposition in the room to the merits of gay couples raising children and forming more traditional families, but I didn't feel any animosity to those who choose otherwise. In fact, there was repeated acknowledgment that many and varied are the ways to structure a great queer life. I've gotten a bit deeper into my reflection about this over on Perge Modo.
