Caught in the Crossfire [electronic resource]: Children of Gay and Lesbian Parents

University of Southern California
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Prompted by the surprising comments of her own daughter, director and lesbian mother Sandra Williams made this program to give voice to the thoughts, emotions, and positive and negative experiences of seven children who are being raised by gay or lesbian parents. The children, ranging in age from 8 to 16, speak about their parents' sexuality and how it makes their own lives complicated and often difficult. What comes through in these sometimes painful disclosures is the strength of the bond between child and parent.
