Gay people are most of the time looked at strangely, because people who judge them do not understand their perspective. Their student, professional and personal lives are affected by suspicion, harassment, and discrimination. And when they decide to have a baby, all these negative perceptions on their life accentuate and intensify. Opponents of lesbian and gay people claim that their children are prone to developing negative mental patterns, habits, and behaviors. Children of same-sex couples are prone to judgment, discrimination, and...

Even if the couple is married and both are listed on the birth certificate, the Trump administration says they may not be a family because they were "born out of wedlock." A Trump administration change to how immigration law is implemented has led to the children of same-sex couples being denied American citizenship. Several years ago, the State Department issued rules to how it would implement the 1952 Immigration and Nationality Act (INA). Before, under the INA, a child born to...

Organizers report a recent increase in interest in surrogacy among gay Asian couples, especially in China. A gay parenting “boot camp” will host its first ever event in Asia, in response to growing demand for surrogates, organizers have told Reuters. New York-based non-profit Men Having Babies (MHB) holds events across the globe that, according to its website, has “helped thousands of gay men worldwide become parents,” by offering advice and support. It also adds that while gay men are the target...

EVA Air has apologized and called the incident a misunderstanding. A gay couple was told only one of them could board a flight with their 19-month-old child, while straight families were allowed to remain together, leaving them confused and “very disappointed.” Jeff Cobb and his husband were traveling from San Francisco to Taipei with their daughter on EVA Air, and when Cobb inquired about early boarding for families he was told that only one of the men could get on the...

British Olympic diver Tom Daley and Hollywood producer/screenwriter Dustin Lance Black have announced the birth of their first child. The couple sharedwith the internet back in February that they were expecting to both celebration and disdain. While fans cheered, there were several conservatives who attacked the couple for planning to raise a child without a mother and having a child through surrogacy. All of that darkness and negativity didn’t stop the couple from loving their unborn child and the future they planed...

A new study by Italian scientists says that the psychological adjustment in children of same-sex parents is the same for kids of heterosexual parents. Professor Roberto Baiocco, PhD, and several of his colleagues from Sapienza University of Rome have conducted a survey to see the difference in how children grow up depending on whether their parents are gay men, lesbian women, or a straight couple. The Study, titled With Same-Sex or Different-Sex Parents, Child Outcomes Linked to Family Functioning, was published...

When Jami and Krista Contreras became parents, their beautiful child was everything to them. But when they took the baby to a local pediatrician, the doctor made sure they knew the lesbian couple was nothing to her. Even worse? The couple lives in Michigan where it’s perfectly legal to discriminate against LGBTQ people. The couple met with Dr. Vesna Roi before the birth of their daughter, Bay Windsor. But it wasn’t until the girl was 6 days old and they were...

A national ad campaign to fight against discrimination based on sexual orientation is using a real life family as the faces of the movement. Jami and Krista Contrearas are a happy couple living in Oak Park, Michigan. The married couple, along with their two children, just want a chance at the American dream. To work, to succeed, to be happy, and to be seen as equal. Unfortunately, that’s not what they’ve been given. Three years ago, the couple brought their then...

As gay marriage is now legal across all 50 states of America, it seems that the next issue that LGBTQ couples are fighting for is the right to parent. We’ve already talked about the growing struggle between right wing politicians, LGBTQ couples, and adoption agencies in Georgia (with tv/movie creatives also getting involved), and now it seems a similar struggle is surfacing in Pennsylvania. The trouble started when a lesbian couple went to an orientation meeting for a foster/adoption agency. Magan...

With all the talk around Tom Daley lately revolving around leaked pics or bum shots, it's nice to remember the human behind the news lines. Even better, its nice to remember that he's in a committed relationship, that's had its fiery moments, but is dedicated on making it work. And now, they're adding another life to that relationship. In order to celebrate Valentine's Day, Tom Daley and Dustin Lance Black recently shared on social media the news that they have a baby...

The former U.S. ban on same-sex marriage has made citizenship for the children of same-sex bi-national couples difficult—and it’s led two couples to sue the U.S. government. Immigration Equality, an LGBT immigrant legal advocacy group, and Sullivan & Cromwell LLP filed two lawsuits on Monday against the State Department on behalf of LGBT parents and their children. “The State Department is refusing to acknowledge the citizenship of children whose parents are same-sex married couples. This policy is not only illegal, it...

“The policies that we’re seeing that are still in place continue to be gendered, and that’s really problematic.” While American businesses have made strides in improving parental-leave policies, many still reinforce the stereotype that parenting is woman’s work. That can leave gay men in dire straits if they decide to start a family. Many gay dads are forced to use workarounds—like saving up sick time and vacation days, using unpaid time off—to care for a new baby. Surrogacy and adoption, the...

The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a lawsuit against the state of Michigan, for allowing adoption services to refuse same-sex couples. Michigan pays private agencies to provide child welfare services, providing children with foster care and looking to find them foster and adoptive families. The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services is allowing these services to turn away homes for the children on the grounds of religious objections, because the prospective parents are gay. Despite Michigan having 13,000 children in...
