Synopsis

Kids being raised by same-sex couples are growing in numbers worldwide. We are in a Gayby-Boom. But who are these kids? What do they think about having same-sex parents? And do they face different issues to other kids? At a time when the world is debating marriage equality, these questions are more pertinent than ever. Told from the perspective of the kids, Gayby Baby is intimate and sometimes humorous account of four children and their families.

Education Overview

Australia’s first comprehensive education resource to represent same-sex parented families. The School Action Toolkit is a PDHPE (Y5–10) resource that explores family diversity in a fun & insightful way, using stories drawn from GAYBY BABY. Beyond the classroom, it provides staff with strategies to make their school community a safe & inclusive space for all students & their families. It includes:

  • Activities & strategies that support teachers, administrators & students to recognise, explore & celebrate the diversity of Australian families.
  • Clear lesson plans and student worksheets.
  • Bright ideas for teachers wishing to extend their classroom experience.
  • Frequently Asked Questions and information pertaining directly to same-sex attracted family units.
  • The activities and lesson plans are designed to complement video stimulus material drawn from GAYBY BABY.

The video stimulus material encourages insightful, manageable conversations based on the real life experiences of children being raised by same-sex parents and explores the universal challenges and transitions that students will go through as they move through adolescence.
