Along the way, we meet other gay dads: a single father confronting the isolation of raising at-risk kids in a gay, and largely childless, neighborhood; a healthcare worker battling Florida state law to adopt the child who for five years has called him "Dad"; and a couple and their nine-year-old daughter, whose biggest problem is not that her parents are gay, but divorced. Daddy & Papa takes an unflinching look at some of the complex issues surrounding gay fatherhood, including the effect of sexual orientation on children, challenge of white gay men raising African-American kids, changing relationship of gay fathers to the gay community and real impact on children of being raised without a mother. In the process, it reveals a new picture of what it means to be a family.
