Of the total amount of children in U.S. households, less than one percent live with same-sex parents, and of that one percent, only 27.2% of those households have adopted or stepchildren. Gay and lesbian teens are two to three times as more likely to commit teen suicide than other youths. About 30 percent of all completed suicides are related to sexual identity crisis. LGBT students are also five times more likely to miss school because of lack of security due to bullying. And while the “Don’t ask, don’t tell” law has been repealed, transgender soldiers still may not openly serve in the United States military.
