It Does Make LGBT Parents a Little Crazy to Come Out All the Time

Parents in two-mom and two-dad families have to find ways to mention it -- repeatedly.

It's back-to-school season. And a new video from The Next Family resonates with any parent whose felt that growing sense of paranoia about whether and how to make the inevitable disclaimer.

"I have a hundred different ways to politely tell people that we are a two-mom family," says the site's founder (and star of the video) Brandy Black. "I'm gearing up for another year of new faces and new ways to come out."

Black and her wife have three kids, so that means a lot of new teachers, administrators and fellow parents to meet. They've been making fun videos for The Next Family for the last year.

"I am asked or it's assumed quite often that I have a husband or the kids have a dad," said Black, whose wife, Susan Howard, dons a few costumes in the video to play the usual archetypical characters.

Black assures anxious parents, though, that she's most often welcomed and hears "Sorry, I didn't realize!" before venturing into another topic.

But it does make you a little crazy. Watch below:
