Instagram has faced backlash for censoring a photograph of two gay dads holding their newborn baby, labelling the image as ‘graphic’ and sensitive’ content. Men Having Babies, an international non-profit organisation aiding gay men in their journey to parenthood, shared a photo featuring Liverpool-based couple Sam and David (known as @scousedads on Instagram) alongside their newborn Jude on March 6. Following its publication, Instagram censored the image with a “sensitive content” warning, which read: “Sensitive Content. This photo may contain graphic or violent content… [or] images that some people might find upsetting.”
