Children Raised by Homosexual Parents are Not Likely to Be Homosexual, a Study Shows

Based on the results of a longitudinal study, children raised by same-sex parents are NOT more likely to become homosexual. The participants included 25 children of lesbian mothers and a control group of 21 children of heterosexual single mothers. They were first seen at age 9.5 years on average, and again at age 23.5 years on average. The findings indicated that although those from lesbian families were more likely to explore same-sex relationships, most of the children who grew up in lesbian families identified as heterosexual.
