    1 of 2 2 of 2

      Even though it's a day after Father's Day, any day is a good day to thank dads.

      Director Hieu Tran made a video called "Thanks, Dads" to thank all dads—whether gay, straight, bisexual, or whatever—for being fathers.

      The sweet short film conveys the story of an 11-year-old boy named Tommy with two dads, Jack and Luke, whom he loves in spite of what other people say. 

      Did you remember to thank your dad (or dads)?

      Tran, a Vietnamese American filmmaker, also directed a short film tackling Asian stereotypes called "Squared", about what happens during a one-night stand when two guys (one white, one Asian) find out they're both tops.
