Since our world premiere in April at the Sarasota Film Festival in Florida, we’ve been showing The Guys Next Door all over the country – from the Maine International Film Festival to screenings in conservative states like Alabama and Indiana. And we are proud to say we have won several audience and LGBT awards at film festivals.

And, we’ve started to build partnerships and plan community screenings with prominent LGBTQ and surrogacy organizations, including Planned Parenthood, GLAAD, Family Equality Council and Circle Surrogacy. What’s exciting is that these groups see a real need for stories like ours!

Let’s keep the momentum going! Here’s how your financial support will make a difference for our independent documentary:

★ Broadcast the film on television and make it available on Video On Demand platform like Netflix.
★ Organize university and community screenings across the country.
★ Bring the film to states like North Dakota, Michigan, Mississippi and Virginia, where state adoption laws for same sex couples are extremely limited.
★ Get the film to Europe and Latin America, where issues of gay adoption and surrogacy are being argued at this minute.

With your help TODAY, we will show The Guys Next Door – a celebration of gay parenting and gay rights – across the USA and around world.


We have witnessed a sea change in American opinion about gay marriage. The US Supreme Court made the groundbreaking decision to legalize same sex marriage nationwide! Despite this incredible social progress, gay families in America, as well as across the world, still face discrimination.

This is where our film can make a difference. We believe that if people see what a loving and complex gay family looks like, it changes minds.
