The ongoing fight for LGBT rights, same-sex marriage, and problems with homophobia, make secrecy a popular avenue for gay families.

Many gay parents will easily jump back in the closet for their children’s sake. Unfortunately, this might look like a better option for the children, but there are a few disadvantages.
