Gay San Francisco
city supervisor to father child with lesbian friend

A gay San Francisco city supervisor will soon father a child with a lesbian friend. Such opposite-sex gay couples are charting new ground. The Bay Area Reporter newspaper reports that openly gay San Francisco District 8 supervisor Bevan Dufty is fathering a child with longtime lesbian friend Rebecca Goldfader, who's due in October. The pair is not romantically involved, but they do have plans to begin living together. They also share a common desire many people of all sexual orientations have: to create a family. Beth Teper, executive director of Children of Lesbians and Gays Everywhere (COLAGE), a social and advocacy organization, says families with multiple parents certainly exist and that LGBT families can actually work quite well. She tells the newspaper that "queer families have been creating and forming their families in all the ways they can throughout the last millennium." She says there are many gay families with coparents, adding that COLAGE has several member kids known as "bothies," meaning they have two gay dads and two gay moms. As to Goldfader and Dufty's next steps, they're looking into moving into a duplex with separate quarters. "The most important thing to me is community support--to have the people who can be there for you in really simple ways and then ultimately be there for you during the long haul," Goldfader told the paper.
