Married with Children – Fathers and coming out

In 2020 Shaun established an online peer support group for gay men who have children from heterosexual relationships, sometimes called ‘gay and married men’. The group, Gay Fathers Worldwide now boasts over 800 members from across the globe. Shaun, and group members Chris and John join Michael to talk about their journeys in acceptance, coming out, and finding support and social connection online.

Thank yout to Shaun, John, and Chris for speaking so candidly about their experiences.
