‘This research shows the majority of people view lesbian and gay parents as equal to any other parents. Recent Cambridge University research Different Families, commissioned by Stonewall, found that the children of same-sex parents enjoy an equal quality of upbringing as any other children – and they recognise this themselves.
‘However, children with lesbian and gay parents often wish others were more accepting. Some reported experiencing homophobic bullying for having same-sex parents at both primary and secondary school – demonstrating the need to tackle prejudice early-on in education.’
