Interesting article in Bay Window’s, a New England LGBT newspaper, about new research about gay and lesbian parenting. Turns out not only are we not worse, we might actually be better!
…Representatives from the American Psychological Association, the American Psychiatric Association, the National Association of Social Workers, and the American Counseling Association to set the record straight with regard to the research on LGBT parenting. Each of the representatives affirmed that the body of credible research on LGBT parenting shows that children raised by two committed LGBT parents develop just as well as their peers raised by married heterosexual parents.
Much of it has been done in response to a campaign by Focus on the Family, who has been taking other researcher’s studies and distorting their findings as proof that children do better when raised by heterosexual parents.
