After Orlando, 21 photos of gay dads and their kids to help you smile again
It takes a special kind of commitment for gay men to become parents, which is one reason they deserve to be celebrated this Father's Day. What's more, many gay couples adopt from the foster care system, helping hard-to-place kids find permanent homes.
To honor these devoted dads — and provide some uplift after the tragedy in Orlando — we've collected 21 photos of thriving families from the website Gays With Kids. These dads span the globe and show that love comes in all forms.
And if you really want to pull out the tissues, check out Gays With Kids' series "Then and Now" about how some of these families came to be!
