Two million kids in America live with lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) parents. They’re happy and healthy, but face challenges from unfair laws that don’t recognize their families. In 2011, the Family Equality Council, Center for American Progress (CAP), and Movement Advancement Project (MAP) collaborated on a groundbreaking report highlighting these inequities — “All Children Matter: How Legal and Social Inequalities Hurt LGBT Families.” Watch this video to learn more about LGBT families, the obstacles they face, and the watershed moment they’re experiencing.
