Gender Studies Lecture Series: Living Under the Rainbow: Lesbian and Gay Parents and their Children
Thursday, Jan 21, 2016
5:30 p.m. - 7 p.m. Location: SU Galaxy Room - C, SU 2.602

Lecture by Charlotte J. Patterson, a Professor in the UVA Department of Psychology and in the Center for Children, Families, and the Law, and is Director of UVA’s interdisciplinary program, Women, Gender, and Sexuality (WGS).

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.

This event is sponsored by The School of Interdisciplinary Studies Gender Studies Program & the Galerstein Women’s Center.
