Taylor Jensen lived in the closet most of his adult life. He married and had two children as he established himself as a family and civil rights lawyer. When his wife dies of cancer, Taylor decides the deception should end. Taylor takes on several cases dealing with gay rights and same-sex parenting – hoping to see the law revised to allow same-sex couples to adopt, particularly the natural children of their partners. It’s a bold step out of the closet. When he meets Ethan Walker, a civil rights columnist for a major newspaper, Taylor knows his life will change. As the two fall in love and begin to establish a “family” together, a sinister opponent, wealthy and powerful, will stop at nothing to ensure their ideal fails. Set in Toronto and Southern Ontario during the real-life challenges to legislation prohibiting same-sex adoption, Pride’s Children weaves a tale of intrigue, romance and family love that represents all aspects of the overall struggle for equality rights that continues, in many places, even today.
