LGBT parents

In Ireland almost 50% of homosexual parents declare of being discriminated because of their status. That’s what emerged from a report led by LGBT Diversity and 12 other associations that collected 153 same-sex parents experiences as well as those of 170 who are planning to start a family. It shows as well all the juridical challenges that many of them must face to be recognized as a family. This status isn’t accorded to 16% of them despite their active role as fathers or mothers. It is sufficient to think that there are 51 children who are emotionally attached to a person to whom the law doesn’t recognize any right.
