A landmark online research portal focusing on LGBT Equality at Columbia Law School “What we Know” has just launched with its first report on what scholarly research says about the children of gay or lesbian parents. The results are stunning – they reviewed 73 recent studies that examined the well-being of gay or lesbian children. A total of 70 of the studies concluded that children of gay or lesbian parents fare no worse than other children. Three of the studies conclude that they face added disadvantages. Visit the “What we Know” web site to see the details, where there are links to the abstracts of all the studies as well as to the sources where each article can be found.
The project they are working on next is equally important – “What does the scholarly research say about the impact of conversion therapy on LGB people?” Visit their site for more information about the project
