Upstream Swimming

In the late 80’s (before having same-sex parents was considered “cool”), Dad and Pop decided they wanted to have a family. A few years and many unique attempts later - enter Lindsey: your typical 20-something year old girl, who just happens to have two gay dads.

Lindsey Steinert (Writer/Performer) is thrilled for Upstream Swimming to take part in such a forward-thinking festival, where it’s able to provide others with a realistic idea of what growing up with same-sex parents is really like. Lindsey is a graduate of the Pace University Honors College where she received a BA degree in Acting and Sociology/Anthropology, as well as a minor in Peace & Justice Studies. Lindsey would like to thank Erez and Horse Trade for this opportunity, as well as her Dad, Pop and 5 younger siblings for their willingness to not entirely object to her decision to make their private lives public (whether they liked it or not).
