Editorial Reviews

"Lesbian and Gay Parenting breaks new ground by showing the ways social class is central to queer families. Drawing on interviews with lesbians and gay men, Taylor's research is a must read for all serious students of sexuality, gender, and family in the Anglo-European world."
--Steven Seidman, Whitlessey Professor of Sociology, American University of Beirut, Lebanon
