These Adorable Kids Have a Message for You About Their Gay Dads

These two cuties are taking the internet by storm with their important message: There are all kinds of families!


Bud and Manuel are dads to Álvaro and Carmen and are popular on Instagram and Facebook as @TwoGayPapas. This brother and sister duo are not only super endearing in this video, but they're also telling it like it is.

The two start off by introducing themselves. Then, Álvaro shares a couple of fun facts about himself. "At recess I like to play Super Wings," he says, "And ... I have two dads."

Álvaro goes on to tell us about his two dads, and that they are a "super happy family."

"...we laugh a lot."

"Papa, I love you very much."

"Daddy, I love you very much."

Carmen says:


And Álvaro adds:


He continues by telling us that there are all kinds of families. Some with a mom and a dad. Some with two moms, some with two dads. Some with one mommy and some with one daddy.

Álvaro then says, exasperated, and shaking his finger "Come on! So much homophobia! Respect my family!"

And after that strong message from a Bud and Manuel's charming son, Álvaro and Carmen hug.

Love makes a family! It sure does.

Pics of the Moment Before and After Gay Men Become Dads

Dig through your phones — what was the last pic taken of you BEFORE you became a dad?

We all have THAT photo: the one taken moments after we become fathers for the first time. For some of us, we're doing "skin to skin" in a delivery room. For others, we're standing proudly alongside our newly adopted child and judge in a courtroom. However or wherever it happens, though, we make sure to snap a picture of it.

But what about that last photo BEFORE you first became a dad? What does that image look like, we wondered? Well, we asked our Instagram community to dig through through phones and find out. Some of us are enjoying a last carefree meal or glass of wine, others of us are captured nervously contemplating our futures. Whatever it is, we've decided these BEFORE pictures are just as meaningful.

Enjoy some of our favorites! Want to play along? Dig through your phones and send us your pics to dads@gayswithkids.com!

Gay Dad in Sundance's 'Brittany Runs a Marathon' is Relatable AF

Sundance hit "Brittany Runs a Marathon" stars a gay dad trying to get in shape.

Who would make for the best marathon training partner for an overweight, overly boozed 27-year-old woman? A gay dad, of course!

The pairing, for any gay man who has been subjected to impossible beauty standards (not unlike... literally all women?) makes a bit too much sense after watching the new Sundance film, "Brittany Runs a Marathon," starring SNL writer Jillian Bell (as the 27-year-old) and Micah Stock as the (somewhat *ahem* older) gay dad.

Based on a true story, the film follows Brittany, an overweight and over-boozed 20-something, trying to clean up her act by training for the New York City marathon — while doing so, she meets Seth (the gay dad), and the two begin to train together, along with Brittany's neighbor Catherine. Each has their own motivation for running: getting one's live together, recovering from a messy divorce, or an attempt to impress one's athletic son. (Which is the gay dad? Guess you'll have to watch to find out!)

We won't give too much more away, apart from saying that the trio — based off of actual people and events — really works. It's the feel good film you're waiting to see.
