This is DNA’s first family-themed issue. We look at the different ways that LGBTIQ+ people experience and build family – from our given families, to creating our own through surrogacy, fostering and adoption, to the creation of chosen families.
We speak to screenwriter Dustin Lance Black about he and husband Tom Daley and their son, little Robbie Ray. We have an amazing chat with Scott Stuart, the dad who went the extra mile for his son – dressing as Elsa from Frozen and writing a book. And we meet the team at Neighbours who put together the excellent storyline of husbands Aaron and David and their foster care journey. Plus, actress, activist and director, Deborra-lee Furness tells us about the fostering and adoption options available to LGBTIQ+ parents.
Chosen families are an integral part of the LGBTIQ+ community, and photographer Camilo Godoy captures these unique relationships in his work. New York house father, Jarrell Gorgeous Gucci, from Legendary not only vogues with the best of them, he’s a dad to dozens of kids who seek a family in his house.
And we meet the loving couple behind the tabloid headlines as Barrie Drewitt-Barlow and Scott Hutchison announced their engagement.
The complex process of surrogacy is simplified for us by Cassandra Kalpaxis, while we also learn how HIV-positive men can safely donate sperm to become biological dads.
Plus, we have seven super-sexy portfolios for you to enjoy and all your favourite regulars!
