Journal of Family Issues has recently published an article by our Research Fellow Robert Pralat. The article, titled ‘More natural does not equal more normal: Lesbian, gay, and bisexual people’s views about different pathways to parenthood’, draws on findings from Robert’s doctoral research and is part of a special issue on how LGBTQ people redefine the meaning of family. In the article, Robert argues that, when it comes to understanding parenthood, ‘normality’ and ‘naturalness’ have fundamentally contradictory meanings, which complicates the objective to ensure that creating a family is ‘in children’s best interests’.
