These Gay Dads Have Been Slaying Halloween Since 2013...

And this year they've brought their Halloween costume game to a new level!

Adam White and Eric Evans take their family Halloween ensembles to another level, as evident below! They have two kids through open adoption (read their family story here), and since becoming dads, they've been creating fantastical and inspired photoshoots. "It's a labor of love to makes these costumes and provide these memories," shared Erik.

Check out their fabulous costumes spanning the past 5 years!

2013: Alice in Wonderland

"Alice in Wonderland was a childhood favorite for both of us. In thinking of our son's first Halloween costume, the choice was obvious. We didn't originally plan to dress up with him, but the thought that he wouldn't do well in pictures without us holding him led to our favorite yearly tradition." - Adam & Eric

2014: Lollipop Guild

"We knew that The Wizard of Oz would be a costume choice one year, but we did not want to do the obvious characters. After attending a summer production of the show, Eric threw out the idea of the Lollipop Guild. We instantly knew we had to do it!" - Adam & Eric

2015: Pinocchio

"This year's theme was accidental. After searching on Etsy for costume ideas, we stumbled upon the cutest costume. It was both unexpected and perfect for our blonde haired, 2-year-old boy! It also gave his theatre daddies a chance to get back up on the stage for the Halloween pictures." - Adam & Eric

2016: Nursery Rhyme Characters 

"This was our first Halloween as a family of four. The idea of our son being Humpty Dumpty was suggested for a few years, but we couldn't find the right costume. Now with a baby in the picture, and a very talented grandma who could make the costumes, we decided to do classic nursery rhyme characters: Humpty Dumpty, Little Miss Muffet, the little piggy who went to market, and one of the three blind mice" - Adam & Eric

2017: Classic Halloween

"Welcome to the first year of having an opinionated child! Once Halloween decorations started popping up in stores, our son kept saying he wanted to be a bat. We decided to do classic Halloween costumes by pairing kid and adult costumes together." - Adam & Eric

2018: A Christmas Carol

"This year's theme goes back to Adam's roots as a former English Teacher. Combined with our son's love of ghosts and our daughter's love of dresses, A Christmas Carol was a perfect choice!" - Adam and Eric

After Suffering a Violent Homophobic Attack, This Gay Dad Turned to Advocacy

After Rene suffered a brutal homophobic attack that left him hospitalized, he and his family have turned to advocacy to heal

Guest post written by Rene and Nejc

We are Rene (35) and Nejc (29) and we come from Slovenia, Europe. I was an avid athlete, a Judoist, but now I am an LGBT activist and Nejc is a writer, who published a gay autobiography called Prepovedano. He was also a participant in a reality show in Slovenia (Bar) and he is an LGBT activist too. Nejc and I met by a mere coincidence on Facebook, and already after the first phone call we realized that we are made for each other. Nejc and I have been together as couple almost one year. We think we have been joined by some energy, as we have both experienced a lot of bad things with previous relationships and now we wish to create and shape our common path.

4 Tips for Single Gay Dads Raising Daughters

Here are some ways to create a safe space for your daughter to discover who she is, with you by her side.

There's nothing quite like father-daughter relationships, and when it comes to single dads, your little girl likely holds a very special place in your heart. From the moment she's born, it's as if you can see every moment of her life in front of you, from her first steps to walking her down the aisle at her wedding. You'll be the first man she'll know and talk to, and you'll be her biggest example of what a loving man looks like. She'll come to you for advice on how to navigate challenges, be independent, treat others and grow into herself.

Your relationship with your daughter may be shaped by your personal history, whether you've been through a difficult divorce or breakup, you've transitioned out of a straight relationship, or you made the courageous decision to pursue surrogacy on your own. Whatever your situation is, studies have shown that children with involved fathers excel more in school and have fewer behavioral issues in adolescence.

How to Survive a Midlife Crisis (A Guide for Gay Dads)

Turns out David Blacker is, in fact, experiencing a midlife crisis — according to the very official results of a Buzzfeed quiz

Today I took one of those Buzzfeed-like quizzes to determine whether or not I am having a midlife crisis. I know what you're thinking. How can 29 be considered mid-life? God bless you, but I'm actually 35. Fine, 41. The Buzzfeed results — granted, we're not talking a true clinical assessment here — implied that I am, in fact, showing symptoms of a midlife crisis. But instead of shopping for a new sports car, I'm looking around for something else.

Problem is, I don't quite know what that is yet.
