A Different Conversation returns in February 2015 with the title “Gayby Babies: Let the children speak”. It will focus on the stories and experiences of the children of same-sex parents. Special guests will include Australian producer of a documentary and a film, “Gayby Baby”, Maya Newell sharing her experience as a gayby. In addition, Paul Martin, a respected Australia psychologist, who previously led Exodus Australia before reclaiming his true sexual orientation, will be sharing from his experience of counselling gaybies.
We are also going to have the children of same-sex parents sharing their stories and inviting religious leaders to share how they would or do respond to having gaybies in their congregations. It will be held on Friday 20th February 2015 from 7.00pm to 10.00pm and Saturday 21st February from 9am to 5pm at a venue in Ponsonby. We will then be able to watch the Auckland Pride Parade on Ponsonby Road on Saturday evening.
