This is a podcast featuring a conversation with gay, Korean adoptee Joel Kim Booster (comedian and actor). This episode explores how the film Fire Island honors queer friendships, subverts heteronormative themes, and tells a story which feels universal.
This tells the story of two adoptees and their families. One family is a couple excitedly preparing for the adoption of a baby girl. The other, a 32-year-old adoptee from Korea who has always struggled to speak with her adoptive parents about her adoption. The two stories are at opposite ends of the adoption process and converge to show that love alone is not enough to make a family work.
This is an hour-long documentary revealing the filmmaker’s journey as a birthmother. It also features the stories of adoptees, birthparents, and adoptive parents. A wide variety of perspectives and topics about adoption are considered, especially the connections between birth families and adoptive families.
