Gays With Kids
When gay, bi and trans men make the decision to start the incredible journey to fatherhood, we do what everyone else would do - consult the internet, social media and books for help.

That’s why GWK was born - the world’s only destination and social network dedicated exclusively to serving the interests and needs of every queer dad, dad-to-be and our families.
