The Handsome Father, a new national non-profit organization headquartered in Austin, launched in April and aims to foster a community of support to connect, equip and inspire gay fathers and fathers-to-be. Focused on providing education, resources and raising awareness, The Handsome Father’s programs and services include a one-on-one mentorship program, an online platform to showcase family profiles and a comprehensive resource listing of family building and sustaining services.
“Dads are dads,”the organization said in a press release. “We can help fathers-to-be understand their own unique options for becoming a dad and how to be a great one. We strive to make the path to fatherhood easy to access and simple to understand. And once you become a dad, we foster a community of support to help you connect to other men who can understand and appreciate what it means to be a gay dad.”
