This article presents a review of current British and American literature on the children of lesbians and gay men, and connects this literature with the small amount of information available on lesbian and gay families in Australia. The article outlines available demographic information about lesbian and gay family forms; provides an overview of the results of sociological and psychological research into the development and well being of children raised in lesbian and gay families; and reviews the implications of the research reviewed for both current and future legal and policy regulation of lesbian and gay families.
