Four same-sex couples and their kids are profiled in the uplifting new documentary Papa & Dada

A new documentary from award-winning Swiss director Daniela Ambrosoli, Papa & Dada shows what it means to raise children as a gay couple.

Four same-sex couples, including the famous ballet dancer John Lam and his husband John Ruggieri, talk about of the tough challenges and inspiring joys they experienced along to road to becoming a family.

The film paints a loving portrait of ordinary family life, showing how two fathers experience the same worries, hardships, joys and challenges as straight couples. The unconditional love shown to the children runs like a thread through the film – unobtrusive, but always present.

Funny, touching and inspiring, the film ultimately aims to prove that sexual orientation has nothing to do with raising a child. Being a parent simply means giving love. Period.

Watch the trailer for Papa & Dada below. The film is now available on Dekkoo.
