Choosing Children

Trailer Editor
Groundbreaking feature doc chosen for restoration by the Outfest Legacy Project

Hailed as a pioneering achievement when it was first released in 1984, Debra Chasnoff’s Choosing Children dramatically challenged the assumption that being lesbian means you can’t be a mom. Six lesbian-headed families make decisions about how to become pregnant, navigate the process of adoption, whether to involve men in parenting, and address reactions from relatives, doctors and schoolmates. In so doing, they help redefine what “family” means and open the door for everyone to consider parenting, regardless of sexual orientation.
