My Child is about a very courageous and inspiring group of mothers and fathers in Turkey, who are parents of LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans) individuals. They have not only gone through the difficult path of accepting their children for who they are, but also have taken the next step to share their experiences with other families and the public. In this documentary the parents intimately share their experiences with the viewer, as they radically redefine what it means to be parents, family, and activists in this conservative, homophobic, and trans-phobic society.

In their homes in Istanbul, Turkey, the parents talk about their experiences of becoming parents; about their children growing up and opening up to them; about the difficult path they had to go through in dealing with this; about opening up to their own friends and families, and re-learning how to be a parent. At the weekly meeting of their support and advocacy group LİSTAG, joined by LGBT-rights activists, they work for visibility, acceptance, and equal rights. At the monthly meeting with volunteer psychiatrists, they discuss sexuality, sexual identities, gender expressions and transformation one goes through as a parent. At a monthly dinner party, the parents socialize with other parents and LGBT children. In preparation for the annual Pride March in Istanbul, the parents and activists meet up to make the signs and banners they will be using at the march. In the Pride March, the parents march with their banners as they are joined by thousands.
