My Child

Turkey, 2013, Colour, 82 min

My Child is about a very courageous and inspiring group of mothers and fathers in Turkey, who are parents of LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans) individuals. They have not only gone through the difficult path of accepting their children for who they are, but also have taken the next step to share their experiences with other families and the public. In this documentary the parents intimately share their experiences with the viewer, as they radically redefine what it means to be parents, family, and activists in this conservative, homophobic, and trans-phobic society.
