This paper highlights the plight of gay men and lesbians who want to try and raise families. It introduces the topic on a poignant note of how difficult it is for gays to struggle with their own sexual identities let alone be parents. It then continues to discuss the issues and problems with lesbian parenting as well as how more difficult parenting is for gay men than it is for lesbians.

From the Paper:

"In the past few decades, gay and lesbian parents started to openly identify themselves although they have always existed long before. More and more lesbian women and gay men are choosing to become parents. They are adopting children, becoming foster parents, having biological children through donor insemination, etc., either as single parents or with other gay or lesbian co-parents. If gay and lesbian people struggle with the question of how open and honest they can be about their sexual identity, the struggle is more profound for gay and lesbian parents."
