Meet the gay black fathers who outraged the internet with their “typical family morning.”
It’s been nearly four months since Kordale and Kaleb, a gay black couple, began posting photos of their beautiful family on Instagram, but their honest depiction of a new modern family has finally gone viral.
The photo above showing Kordale and Kaleb’s morning routine with their two daughters sent the ever-progressive users of Twitter into an outraged, downward spiral yesterday as hateful people began spewing vitriol over the fact that two gay black men were tagging themselves as #proudfathers, #blackfathers and #gaydads.
As Mused Magazine Online reports, most of the positive responses to the photo were even laced with cruelty, as many users were glad to see “two things: 1. The fact that this was a black gay couple 2. That it was nice to see black men taking care of children.”
“Are we sheltered from black gay couples that the general public doesn’t think they exist?”, writes Mused‘s Beyond Steven. “The point is that Kaleb and Kordell are not unicorns. They are one of many.”
Not unicorns and we’re pretty happy about that, because frankly, the world could use more positive imagery of loving gay fathers like this. See the best of Kordale and Kaleb with their children Desmiray, Maliyah, and Kordale Jr. here.
