How is it different to have a gay parent instead of a straight one?

Does being brought up by a gay parent change the childhood experience and how?

Is being a homosexual parent more of a challenge than being a heterosexual one? In what ways?

As society becomes increasingly inclusive over time, and now gay marriage is legal and widely accepted, how does it feel to be the child of a gay relationship? And what challenges or difficulties does being a gay parent present?

Nadia and Mark talk about Mark's experience of having a gay mother. How some people were openly hostile towards her and how Mark had to navigate prejudice and hatred for something he knew as harmless and normal.

Mark and Nadia invite Nana Di on to talk about her experience of discovering her sexuality while bringing up Mark, and daughter Maddy gives her perspective on relationships and how adults can talk more openly about orientation.

Hear this and much more in this episode of Confessions Of A Modern Parent.

And they take questions and suggestions from listeners on their experiences in parenting roles.
