Who’s coming to Thanksgiving? For Engadget executive editor and Computer Love columnist Christopher Trout, the list includes the following: his father, a preacher from rural Texas; his boyfriend, a cop he met on Grindr; his baby mama, a ciswoman to whom he donated sperm; his baby papa, a transman with whom he once hooked up; and his mom. Before heading down to Texas, Trout visited Sex Lives to discuss family, fertility, why discovering his sexuality meant losing his faith, and how he found peace inside a porn star’s anus.
