Judges, academics, and activists keep wondering how children are impacted
by having gay parents. Maybe it?s time to ask the kids. For the past four years,
award-winning photographer Gabriela Herman, whose mother came out when Herman
was in high school and was married in one of Massachusetts? first legal same-sex
unions, has been photographing and interviewing children and young adults with
one or more parent who identify as lesbian, gay, trans, or queer. Building on
images featured in a major article for the New York Times Sunday Review and
The Guardian and working with the Colage organization, the only national organization
focusing on children with LGBTQ parents, The Kids brings a vibrant energy and
sensitivity to a wide range of experiences.
Some of the children Herman photographed were adopted, some conceived by
artificial insemination. Many are children of divorce. Some were raised in urban
areas, other in the rural Midwest and all over the map. These parents and children
juggled silence and solitude with a need to defend their families on the playground,
at church, and at holiday gatherings.
This is their story.
