Lytle, M.C., Foley, P.F. & Aster, A.M. (2013). Adult Children of Gay and Lesbian Parents: Religion and the Parent-Child Relationship. The Counseling Psychologist, 41(4), 530-567.

This work explores the impact of religion on the parent-child relationships of adult children with gay or lesbian parents. Adult children are interviewed and asked to retrospectively look at how religion impacted their parent-child relationships. Many themes emerged, some as expected and some unexpected.

Questions to Consider:
  1. What were some of the reasons this study was developed? What was different about the research purpose for this study versus the studies cited within this work?
  2. Why is religion a social institution that we should consider when studying parenting? How has religion shaped other family events in heterosexual parent homes? Do we know?

This study was designed to assess whether children’s attitudes toward gay men and lesbian women differ according to their ethnic backgrounds and social understandings of gender roles.

Questions to Consider:
  1. What are some examples of the expected gender roles that children may have regarding gay men and lesbian women?
  2. How did these attitudes vary according to age group? Was this covered or inferred?


Rothblum, E. (2010). Where is the ‘Women’s Community?’ Voices of Lesbian, Bisexual, and Queer Women and Heterosexual Sisters. Feminism & Psychology20(4), 454-472.

This study examined the definition of and connection to ‘community’ of women (28 lesbian, 19 bisexual, three queer, and 10 heterosexual). The research found that “women feel excluded or isolated from community, and this has implications for their needs for connectedness.”(3)

Questions to Consider:
  1. What are some of the conceptions of bisexual women? Does this article address any of those misconceptions? Explain.
  2. What does ‘community’ mean for the women in this study? Is there an agreed upon meaning for this term? Provide context and explain.
