Thanks for the tip, Meghann. If you go to http://www.tavrohfilms.com/ you can get the DVD of the film w= ith 20 minutes of extra film footage via Paypal for only $15.95 and 1.59 shi= pping and handling AND half of the cost goes directly to the family fighting= all of the legal battles. I bought a copy to donate to our collection.

I saw one excellent film at the Philadelphia GLBT Film Fest this past summe= r that I'd recommend to anyone collecting in these areas; it's a little more= obscure than some of the titles already mentioned but in my opinion is one = of the best docs I've seen on GLBT issues.  It's called We Are Dad.

The film follows two men, pediatric nurses, who adopt and raise 'throwaway'= babies born with HIV.  The story follows the family and their legal pr= oblems when one of the children tests negative at age 3. (Since he is HIV-fr= ee, the state views him as a candidate for adoption by a 'regular' family.) =  One major theme of the film is the discrimination these men face as ga= y parents, however there are many wonderful scenes of the family going about= their daily business -- funny, touching, etc.  The viewer gets a reall= y good sense of how these men and children interact as a family.  More = information at:
