Growing up with LGBTQ+ parents
The directors of What We Know, a public policy research portal based at Cornell University, have compiled 79 separate scholarly studies that examine the well-being of children raised by gay or lesbian parents.
Based on their review of these studies, the directors of What We Know conclude that the "overwhelming scholarly consensus, based on over 3 decades of peer-reviewed research" is that "having a gay or lesbian parent does not harm children" (What We Know Project, 2015).
