The CLGA was contacted by filmmaker Lisa Marie Evans to assist her in collecting materials for her current documentary project.
It seems like a very interesting project, as does her body of work.
If you are an LGBT parent or part of an LGBT family, might be worth checking this out.

Documentary Film, Gayby Boom, Seeks Video Entries by LGBT Families
Arizona, May 3, 2010 - Parents who are lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender are invited to submit home videos to be included in a feature documentary, Gayby Boom, exploring the ever-evolving definition of family values. LGBT parents and their children of all ages are encouraged to submit. Filmmaker toolkits are available online to assist in the filming process.
"We need parents from around the globe to submit home-videos to represent the many faces and lives involved in LGBT families. In a time where it is still illegal for LGBT individuals to marry and/or adopt in the U.S. and many other countries, this is also the time to share our lives in the spirit of education and awareness for all communities," expressed filmmaker Lisa Marie Evans. "This will be a brilliant education tool for LGBT individuals seeking to bring children into their lives as they may learn from the stories and the experiences of others."
When signing the release forms, individuals are asked who referred them to submit a video. To assist in publicizing the call for videos, the organization or individual who refers the most entries will be awarded their name in the opening credits.
