Terrell and Jarius Joseph

Influencers & Parents

Terrell and Jarius are millennial gay dads raising their two darling toddlers in Atlanta, GA. The couple met freshman year of college at a haunted house and got engaged exactly two years following. They bought their first home in 2015 when they were just out of college at the age of 22 and immediately sought a surrogate to start their family before the dynamic duo exchanged vows in 2017. Their unconventional journey has been a beacon of hope for the LGBTQIA+ community, and their mission has been steadfast in breaking stigmas and stereotypes around same-sex parenting. They made history on the reboot of Wife Swap as the first gay couple to swap families in an effort to educate viewers on misconceptions and discriminations they face. They are vocal about social injustice, civic duty, and sharing their story on what is means to belong to two vulnerable communities as gay Black men.
