Parents - Same sex parenting

Bringing up a child or children in a same sex parental environment has been proven to be just as healthy and beneficial for a child as it would be if the parents were opposite sexes. In most modern societies, there is no law preventing lesbian, gay or bisexual individuals from adopting children and raising them as part of a family.

There is already a significant percentage of families with same sex parents and children in these environments are generally looked after better than they would be elsewhere. However, raising a child or children isn’t without its fair share of stress and headaches. Unfortunately, there are still people with hetero-sexist and homophobic attitudes and beliefs which can affect families in many ways. Same sex parents can find support here through questions, answers and conversation.
