We need to talk about LGBT parents who lose their children to the child welfare system
I have written about lesbian mothers, and LGBT parents more broadly, in many contexts. But from now on I'll be concentrating on one context...child welfare proceedings that remove children from their parents and that can result in termination of parental rights. My first post on this topic was on the website of the LGBTQ Poverty Initiative, whose report, Intersecting Injustice, was recently released. Read Invisible and Ignored: LGBT Parents in the Child Welfare System here, and stayed tuned for more.
