Now that marriage equality is the law of the land, and lesbian and gay parenting is increasingly ordinary, what can social science research tell us about these “rainbow families”? To address this question, this talk will summarize overall findings from 25 years of research with lesbian and gay parents and their children, and will consider some new findings from recent research. Discussion will focus on questions about the future of lesbian and gay parenting in communities across the country.
