With their legen- wait for it -dary family Halloween costumes they have to be one of the cutest LGBT+ families out there.
Jay O’Callaghan and Aaron O’Bryan
Jay O’Callaghan and Aaron O’Bryan touched all our hearts following their appearance with their son on the Late Late Show after they were refused a passport for him until they could prove that one of them was the biological father. They eventually received the passport and we couldn’t be happier for this family who didn’t stand for different treatment for LGBT+ families.
Colm O’Gorman and Paul
Colm O’Gorman and his husband Paul always tried to shield their children from the limelight but after their daughter, Safia read a letter about her dads on the radio in the lead up the marriage equality referendum he opened up about the privilege of raising his two kids Safia and Sean.
