“New Deep South” debuts with an interracial lesbian couple looking to start a family

In The Front‘s premiere episode of New Deep South, Keeta and Toni share how they met on Instagram and are now engaged and waiting to adopt a baby. But the young couple live in Jackson, Mississippi, where same-sex parents are not allowed to adopt, and when they lose their only prospect, they decide to get pregnant themselves. In “Instababy,” Keeta and Toni try to figure out how they can start a family while existing in a place that isn’t set up to help them succeed. 

Check back soon for another episode of New Deep South. In the meantime, visit thefront.com for more media by women.
