Discovery Health will feature lesbian moms Karen and Janice tomorrow (Tuesday) on Five Under 5 at 8:00 p.m. ET. The moms have a four-year-old daughter and twin sons, and are preparing to welcome another set of twins. I feel exhausted just thinking about it—but they seem to be quite the happy family.
If you want to jump ahead and see what’s happening in their lives right now, check out their blog, Role Playing with Kids.
Discovery Health seems to have a thing about lesbians with large families. Last June, they aired Quads with Two Moms (which I reviewed here), about a couple with one child who then each got pregnant with twins at the same time. All this gives a slightly skewed view of our demographic as a whole, but if Quads is any indication, their coverage is positive and well balanced. I really can’t complain.
I suppose it’s progress when LGBT families are noted for the number of the kids rather than the gender of the parents. Two lesbians having a single child just isn’t news anymore.
