Santiago Jones question [Apr. 17th, 2013|04:49 am]
Canon Fodder
In Death of the Doctor, someone mentions that Santiago's dad is traveling on a tour with a gay dad organization. Is this...is Santiago's dad gay? Is Santiago gay? OR is one of his siblings gay? Do we know from anywhere, scripts, book, pre production stuff? And is Santiago's dad Jo's son or Santiago's mom Jo's daughter?

A "gay dad organisation" would say to me that it's for dads who are gay.

The audios had information contradictory to Sarah Jane Adventures - in those, she and Cliff split up but they had at least one son, named Matthew. In SJA she has seven unnamed and ungendered children and Santiago, but AFAIK we don't have any information on who his parents are or their exact relation to Jo.

I think you mean the novels, not the Sarah Jane audios. In the novels Cliff and Jo split up and had one son. A gay dad organization could mean dads of gay sons or what you said. So if it is what you said, Santiago's dad told them he was gay???? ANd is that Jo's son?

Ugh, sorry, you're right. The novels. Organisations for parents of gay children are usually titled so that the adjective "gay" applies to the child, not the parent. So I would infer that Santiago's dad is gay, but unless you want to make his dad Matthew from the novels, we have no information on whether he is Jo's son or someone who had a baby with Jo's daughter.
