TWINKLE, TWINKLE, LITTLE STAR

• Research shows that children with LGBT parents are NOT more likely to be gay than children with heterosexual parents.

• The quality of parent-child relationships is more important for a child’s development than parents’ sexual orientation.

• It is a myth that LGBT individuals do not have stable relationships & therefore can’t raise children.

• There are many well-adjusted children, teens & adults who had LGBT parents.
