TO BE OFFICIALLY PUBLISHED APRIL 13, 2014

This installment of La Joie de Vivre is the last of a four-part series, bringing to a close a dialogue among three adults who were raised by gay parents in the 1960s, 1970s, and 1980s -- Bobby, Rivka, and Dawn. The topics they address in Parts One, Two, and Three now culminate in their expression of concern about abuse in gay parenting homes and what transgender cultures means for the future.

In this edition of La Joie de Vivre, we move to Part Three of the four-part series; here the three adult children of gay parents -- Rivka, Bobby, and Dawn -- build on the topics they discussed in Parts One and Two. In this segment they talk about what it was like when they realized that their family lives were the source of political controversy, and particularly their reaction to the sudden popular attention to "same-sex parenting" after the publication of Heather Has Two Mommies in 1989.

La Joie de Vivre 2:10 -- Kids of Gay Couples Speak Out, Part 2 of 4

RIVKA EDELMAN, BOBBY LOPEZ, DAWN STEFANOWICZ

In this edition of La Joie de Vivre, we continue where Part One of our four-part series left off.

In part one, Dawn, Rivka, and Bobby spoke about whether they felt their experiences were reflected in the highly public research into same-sex parenting. They also delved into the ways that they coped with the absence of a stable parent of the "missing" sex in the home.

In this, the second part, they tackle some of  the questions about the impact of their upbringing on their later sexual choices and point of view.
