Nothing new about being a single, divorced Dad…unless you’re gay. Then all sorts of tricky things happen, that the average person doesn’t think about. Like, He’s gay and has a child? He’s divorced and gay and has a child? He’s a man in his mid-30’s, 40’s and traveling alone with a child? Or my favorite, “OMG your gay and you have a child? You’re really not gay!” Sigh. So what’s a guy to do?
He makes a brand and a life out of being a Gay At Home Dad! And don’t ask which came first, the brand or the life, because trust me they happen simultaneously.
