One of our main motivations for launching GWK in 2014 was to fill the void of content created specifically for gay, bi and trans dads — but the truth is content for all dad, queer or otherwise, is sorely lacking.
That's why we are thrilled to partner with Dove Men+Care on a great YouTube series, featuring an ever-growing list of videos created by dads, for dads. Many dads in our community contributed videos that were helpful, insightful, funny and touching — and everything in between. And we've been excited to see all the great content shared by other dads as well.
We've rounded up some of our favorites below!
