GLAAD President Jarrett Barrios was in Los Angeles on Wednesday to co-host an advanced screening of CNN’s new documentary special, Gary & Tony Have a Baby.

CNN correspondent Soledad O’Brien joined Barrios on a panel after the film to discuss adoption by loving and committed same-sex couples.

"My job is to do the story as authentically as possible," said O'Brien, who went on to note that the stories of LGBT parents often go unnoticed by the media.

Barrios, who is a father of two, spoke about his own experience as an LGBT parent:

"When my son gets made fun of on the baseball diamond, there are no laws to fix it," Barrios said. ""I have to remember that they have to 'come out' to friends too."

One of the parents profiled in the film, Tony Brown, was also on hand to share his experience as a new father:

"The instinct to parent is universal,” Brown said. “It's just love."

Gary and Tony Have a Baby premieres June 24 at 8 p.m. on CNN.
