How is it to grow up with gay or lesbian parents? This award-winning documentary shows the lives and thoughts of several teenagers growing up with two moms or two dads in the U.S., from liberal Manhattan to conservative Texas. Their life experiences have been very different because of the surroundings, as they and their parents candidly explain on camera while we get a glance of their everyday life. The documentary also shows Family Week in Provincetown, the oldest annual meeting of families with lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender parents. Many other teenagers and young adults who attended the event talked about the consequences of having lesbian or gay parents. How do they talk about it with other kids? Which reactions do they have to face? Do they feel some kind of extra pressure? Are they gay themselves?
