Lesbian, Gay, and Bisexual Identities in Families: Psychological Perspectives

Synopsis

Breaking through long-held presumptions about family relationships, this volume acknowledges that lesbian, gay and bisexual identities are an important facet of life in many families, and for the first time examines the entire rich experience of such relationships, in contrast to studies which have looked exclusively at the lives and origins of lesbian and gay couples. Taking advantage of a wealth of new research -- which however up to now has been scattered in multiple, hard-to-locate sources -- the authors present the first authoritative examination of the many different kinds of family relationships sustained by lesbian, gay, and bisexual people.
