VAFT News - "How the issue of lesbian and gay parenting is addressed in family reports" by Eve Tauber

This article reports on research which examined whether children of gay and lesbian parents are disadvantaged in any significant respect relative to the children of heterosexual parents. Previous research has indicated that lesbian and gay parents often go to great lengths to be parents, and portrays a picture of families thriving, even in the midst of discrimination. The main findings of the present research indicate that there is no evidence linking homosexuality with abuse or poor outcomes for children.
