What LGBT Parents Want You to Know

There’s simply no “one size fits all” for parenting.

While modern families may come in a variety of forms, one thing remains the same: Parents’ love for their children matters most of all.

For so many LGBT parents, societal ignorance remains an ongoing battle. I reached out to the LGBT community for their voices on parenting in the age of the modern family; check out what they had to say after the jump.


  • Gay parents don’t raise gay children 1 of 5
    Gay parents don't raise gay children
    Society seems overwhelmingly concerned with gay parents' ability to raise children with traditional gender role models. Gay parents don't raise gay kids. Period. My son will grow to love who he loves and we'll love him unconditionally.

  • We have stable, happy homes 2 of 5
    We have stable, happy homes
    Sexual orientation has nothing to do with providing a stable and loving home. My partner and I live traditional lives with one goal in mind, to raise a happy, tolerant kid. So far we're doing a great job!

  • Sexual orientation and the ability to parent are unrelated 3 of 5
    Sexual orientation and the ability to parent are unrelated
    My partner and I work hard to provide our son with the very best. Sexual orientation and the ability to parent are completely unrelated.

  • Gay parents are not sexual deviants 4 of 5
    Gay parents are not sexual deviants
    To assume gay people are sexual deviants is ridiculous. This kind of ignorant thinking sets our cause back about 100 years. We believe in the importance of protecting children just as much as any parent!

  • Don’t worry about my kid 5 of 5
    Don't worry about my kid
    Yes, our daughter has two moms. So what? She's not weirded out by it so why should anyone else be? She also has five uncles, one crazy aunt, two grandpas, and a grandma who all adore her. She's a lucky kid.
