What does it cost for an LGBTQ person to become a parent and raise a child in the U.S. today? What are the particular challenges we face? I investigate those questions in a new article for the Advocate.
I spoke with a number of parents across the LGBTQ spectrum for “The High Cost of Parenting If You’re LGBT,” exploring their financial, legal, emotional, and other obstacles and the trade-offs they sometimes had to make. Thanks to all of them for their time and willingness to share their stories.
I hope you’ll go have a read.
