“My Child” is a feature documentary about a very courageous and inspiring group of mothers and
fathers in Turkey, who are parents of lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans-gender individuals. They have not only
gone through the difficult path of accepting their children for who they are, but also have taken the next
step to share their experiences with other LGBT families and the public. In “My Child” seven parents
intimately share their experiences with the viewer, as they redefine what it means to be parents, family,
and activists in this conservative, homophobic and trans-phobic society.
