Debate: Raising children in same-sex couples
Following the screening of All Together, dir. Marco Simon Puccioni.
Partners: Campaign Against Homophobia, NOIZZ
The highlight of social debate on rainbow families in Poland is a snarky quip that plenty of children are raised by two people of the same sex: Mom and Grandma. In our country, same-sex couples raising children together are demonized and called a threat to the “traditional family”. However, disparity in rights will not make these families disappear. The West had already learned tolerance, but is Poland ready to admit that everyone deserves equal rights? Join us for a debate on rainbow families, same-sex parenthood, and adoption after the screening of All Together, a documentary showing that not too far from Poland there is a world where men can be excellent fathers for their sons without shying from difficult questions.
