Gayby Baby

Venue Raffertys Theatre
Dates 12 September 2015

Featuring Q&A with Producer Charlotte Mars

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.

The Q&A after the film will be with Charlotte Mars, an emerging producer, writer and director. Her credits include The Slap (ABC1), Devil’s Playground (Foxtel) and Underground: The Julian Assange Story (Ten).

Classification: PG – Mild themes and coarse language
