Kaleb and Kordale are two dads who love to share photos of their children on Instagram. While this is pretty commonplace for many parents, Kaleb and Kordale are black, gay, and raising their children together.
I know, what a concept!
Apparently, while many of us know black, gay couples raising kids and doing every day things “normal” people do, some aren’t quite used to the image of two attractive (uh, FINE) black men parenting together.
MUSED, a magazine that caters to black, gay men, wonders: “Are we that sheltered from black gay couples that the general public doesn’t think they exist?”
While the pair received some predictably negative comments via Twitter, they also received a ton of love. This gives me hope that one day all facets of Black fatherhood will continue to make their way into the mainstream and expand the idea of who Black fathers really are.
Kudos fellas. Keep up the great work!
