"My Child" is a feature documentary about parents of LGBT individuals in Turkey, intimately recounting their personal experiences. The film shows 5 households in Istanbul, in which their child came out of the closet to his/her parents, and the parents shared their personal stories of accepting their children and turning into activist parents in Turkey; a conservative, homophobic and transphobic society.

LİSTAG ("Families of LGBTs İstanbul") is a civil initiative, formed by the parents of a group of LGBT individuals in İstanbul. The documentary film "My Child" was screened in 14 international film festivals and many screening venues.

Conscientious objector Mehmet Tarhan, who is the advisor of the film and is screened in the film with his mother, was put on trial and punished to 15 months imprisonment with $3600 fine.

"Benim Çocuğum", çocukları LGBT bireyler olan Türkiyeli bir grup anne ve babaya odaklanarak, bu cesur ve ilham veren ebeveynlerin hikayelerini seyirciye taşıyan uzun metrajlı bir belgeseldir. Bu belgeselde, muhafazakar, homofobik ve transfobik bir toplumda bir yandan ebeveyn ve aile, bir yandan da aktivist olmanın ne anlama geldiğini yeniden tanımlayan ebeveynlerin kendi deneyimlerini en içten şekilde seyirciye aktarmalarına tanıklık ediyoruz.

LİSTAG (LGBTT Aileleri İstanbul Grubu), LGBT bireylerin ebeveynleri tarafından kurulan bir sivil inisiyatiftir. "Benim Çocuğum" belgesel filmi, 14 uluslararası film festivalinde ve çok sayıda sinema salonunda gösterilmiştir.

Filmin danışmanı olan ve filmde annesiyle birlikte rol alan vicdani retçi Mehmet Tarhan, yargı tarafından 15 ay hapis ve 9000 TL para cezasına çarptırılmıştır.
