This is so poetic.
For queer people, gender non-conforming folk, or anyone who despises inane conversations about babies, the idea of a baby gender reveal party can be a problematic one.
Over-emphasising your kid’s gender from the womb is so last century, plus gender-neutral baby clothing is way more chic. And yet, the tradition persists.Â
But the joke’s on this couple â looks like they’re having a beautiful, bouncing gay baby. Congratulations! And as I told my mum, “It’s not a phase!”
Joe and Leela Krummel are the couple in the video. And as Joe recounted to Caters Clips, “Nobody at the party knew the gender, including us.
“But when we saw the multi-coloured balloons we were so disappointed, not only because 30 people were staring at us in confusion but because we couldn’t find the card in the bottom that had the gender written on it.”
Luckily, the mix-up was rectified by the balloon company and the couple were able to finally reveal the gender of their offspring â with a lovely bunch of blue balloons, being revealed. Blue for boys.
Phew, close call team.
