Where do same sex couples raise their children?

Huffington Post notes a new poll that shows the highest percentage of same sex couples raising children live in states that forbid marriage equality:

A new Williams Institute poll has revealed some startling facts about the demographics of gay and lesbian parents.

Metro areas with the highest percentages of same-sex couples who are raising children are located in socially conservative states with constitutional bans on marriage equality in place, officials at the Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law point out in a press release.

At 26 percent, Salt Lake City, Utah topped the list of large U.S. cities with the most same-sex couples raising children, while at the state level, Mississippi had the highest percentage, also with 26 percent. Following closely behind were Virginia Beach, Va., Detroit and Memphis, Tenn.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
