Nickelodeon tackles the hot-button issue of gay parenting when Linda Ellerbee hosts Nick News Special Edition: My Family Is Different (airing June 18 at 9 pm/ET). Viewers will hear from kids who have one or more gay parents plus, various experts from Rosie O'Donnell to televangelist Jerry Falwell will have their say. Yikes! Is the kiddie channel ready for the inevitable fireworks? Notes Ellerbee: "If we're saying gay people deserve tolerance and respect, we're also saying that people are entitled to their own opinions."
