Can Lesbians, Gay Men, and Bisexuals Be Good Parents? American Psychological Association (APA)

Yes. Studies comparing groups of children raised by homosexual and by heterosexual parents find no developmental differences between the two
groups of children in four crtical areas: their intelligence, psychological adjustment, social adjustment, and popularity with friends. It is also important to realize that a parent's sexual orientation does not indicate their children's.

Another myth about homosexuality is the mistaken belief that gay men have more of a tendency than heterosexual men to sexually molest children. There is no evidence to suggest that homosexuals or bisexuals molest children at a higher rate than heterosexuals.
