Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby of NSW – "Meet the parents: a review of the research on lesbian and gay families" by Jenni Millbank

This review was prepared for the Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby of NSW. It establishes that a considerable body of social science research now exists demonstrating that children from lesbian and gay families do not display any important differences in development, happiness, peer relations or adjustment from those children raised by heterosexual parents. Recent studies from both the UK and USA have shown that family processes, not family structures, are the main determinants of children’s well being. These studies show that it is the quality of the relationships between adults in the household and between the adult/s and children which have the largest impact on the children.
