LGBTQ Families in 2015: Overview from the Family Equality Council
Gabriel will present the most up-to-date numbers — and surprising facts — about LGBTQ families. Even if the Supreme Court makes same-sex marriage legal, families led by same-sex parents still have plenty of fights left. Many states still deny LGBT parents "second-parent adoptions," even in states where marriage is already legal. LGBTQ people are often rejected when they try to adopt foster kids, even though there are 400,000 kids in the foster system and 100,000 eligible for adoption today. And LGBTQ families still can be legally turned away from housing, jobs, even service in a restaurant – even or a haircut.
