Children of LGBT Parents
Experts estimate that more than 10 million people have one or more lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) parents. Some children grow up aware of their parent's orientation, others learn about it when they are older and may have to resolve this fact with feelings of homophobia.
Today, COLAGE is the only national organization in the world specifically supporting children, youth and adults with LGBT parents. Through local chapters and online resources, COLAGE offers a diverse array of support, education and advocacy by and for people with LGBT parents.

The creation of the Where We Are on TV report in 2005 allows GLAAD to track trends and compile statistics for series regular characters on broadcast television with regard to sexual orientation, gender identity and race/ethnicity for the upcoming season.
