Summary
This work examines the inconsistencies in judicial decisions surrounding the rights of gay and lesbian parents and discusses how those inconsistencies have had a negative impact on same-sex parenting and families. Drawing on every recorded judicial decision in gay and lesbian adoption and custody cases over the last fifty years, the author demonstrates how parental and sexual identities are formed and interpreted in law, and how gay and lesbian parents can harness indeterminacy to transform family law
