    Two Austin men struggling with fatherhood as a gay couple have launched a website designed to offer advice, assistance and support to other men in their situation.

    Brian Stephens and Andy Miller launched The Handsome Father and its websites, www.thehandsomefather.org , in April. Now, for its first Father's Day celebration, the group is holding a brunch for gay fathers.

    Stephens says the idea was formed because they often felt alone or like pioneers as they raise their 7-year-old son as gay parents.

    The Austin American-Statesman reports Saturday the website includes stories about gay fatherhood, a blog, a mentorship program and suggestions for other sites, Twitter handles or support networks.

    The nonprofit sustains itself through different levels of membership.
