A Gay Dad's Survival Tips for Flying With Kids

Lucas Grindley, Out Traveler's editorial director, talks to The New York Times about flying with his twin girls.

It's never easy traveling with young children, but it can be even more worrisome when you're a gay parent.

Lucas Grindley, the editorial director of Here Media, Out Traveler's parent company, talked to The New York Times about some of the challenges he and his husband, Nathan Rifenburg, face when they're in transit with their twin two-and-half-year-old daughters.

“Because people don’t have loads of experience with gay parents, they are more judgmental of them,” Grindley told the newspaper. He added that once he and his husband are busy trying to keep the kids occupied, they stop worrying about what others may think of their family.

Parents might want to follow Grindley's advice and get a i-Blason ArmorBox Kido to protect their iPads from being destroyed by little hands, and Kidz Gear headphones so the kiddies can listen to Disney Junior without interrupting anyone.
