Kids vs. No Kids: Gay Men and Parenthood

Special | 8m 45s Video has closed captioning.

A same-sex couple shares their surrogacy journey and parenting story with Cristino, a 24-year-old gay man who isn't sure if he wants kids. Jeff and Tom prod Cristino by asking "would you have kids to save your relationship?" But Jeff also flashes back to his own youth, wondering whether having the full "gay experience" was necessary before settling down into fatherhood.
