Marco attempts to unite his protective husband David, estranged conservative parents and newborn daughter in a comedy about love, faith and devotion.
Follow David and Marco after the birth of their daughter as they navigate parenthood, family and relationships. A story uniquely from the Salvadoran-Mexican-American-LGBT perspective.
A story about a married gay couple and their new baby. One dad is spiritual, one is catholic. They navigate religion, they navigate grandparents, community and friends. Now that there is a baby, what will change for the couple? What will bring them together? What will push them apart? Can a gay family mesh their queer community with their families of origin? A gay story, told in a different way. More honest, more real, sometimes funny, sometimes heartbreaking. Always with more diapers.
The Baby Cries Web Series: Coming Soon
Join us on our journey where will explore the meaning of family and extended family…love, politics, diapers, lack of sleep, and an abundance of love.
