State Theatre presents "Families Like Yours"

Families Like Yours is a powerful documentary exploring the love, compassion, sacrifice, and success of LGBT-led families in America. Through candid interviews and humorous real life stories, Families Like Yours demystifies these families and their busy, loving, complicated lives, and a free screening will be held in New Brunswick on Oct. 19.

The film follows six families as they attempt to balance work and school, rush kids to sports practice, and deal with diaper duty. From all across the nation and in all different stages of family life, from conception to grandchildren, the families represent a cross-section of the modern American family, the only difference being that they are all LGBT families.

Award-winning filmmakers Rodolfo Moro and Marcos Duszczak are the creative team behind a parallel film from Argentina, Familias por Igual, which has been widely praised. That film received several prestigious awards that added momentum to Argentina’s LGBT equality movement.
