CHRIS AND SHELTON

Chris and Shelton Stroman-Inniss, are a same-sex couple who were on the forefront of fighting for marriage equality in Georgia. We follow them as they navigate the world of adoption and parenting as a gay couple by building a support community. Chris and Shelton also explore fractured relationships with their own fathers as they cultivate a relationship between their son Jonathan and his birth mother.

Their story presents an opportunity to learn about and explore the following themes:

  • LGBT Parenting
  • Building Community
  • Black Male Achievement Gap
  • Raising Black Sons
  • Reconnecting with Parents as an Adult
  • Adoption
  • Race
