Film chronicles the birth of a group just for children with gay parents

COLAGE, the organization for "people with a lesbian gay bisexual transgender or queer parent," now has a staff of eight. But the film Family Time, which you can watch on the COLAGE website, chronicles the history of the group and shows that its founders did not even know eight people with an LGBTQ parent when they were growing up.

The film shows how the fight for marriage equality made children with gay parents more visible than ever. Happily, from my point of view, the group values all family forms, and its 2004 newsletter focusing on marriage contains many voices on the subject.

The group also has a larger social justice mission. Yesterday its website posted "5 Reasons We Stand For Workers' Rights." Awesome.

Watch the film and marvel.
