Real Estate Service Strives To Improve The Adoption Process For LGBTQ

GayRealEstate.com is Committed to Supporting LGBTQ Families and Adoption

Press Release - January 3, 2020

GayRealEstate.com, a service which connects buyers and sellers with compatible agents, recognizes the struggles many LGBTQ people face when trying to start a family. The GayRealEstate.com team is committed to supporting LGBTQ families and is working to improve the process by providing both financial assistance to organizations making legal leeway and providing a service allowing families to focus on finding the perfect home without the worry of discrimination.

Between 10 to 30 percent of LGBTQ homebuyers are parents, according to a recent survey of GayRealEstate.com’s more than 1500 partner agents. An estimated two million LGBTQ people are interested in adopting and same-sex parents are raising about four percent of all adopted children in the United States, according to the Movement Advancement Project (MAP). About 13 percent of same-sex couples have an adopted child compared to just 3 percent of different-sex couples, according to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). 

While improving, with the number of same-sex couple adoptions more than tripling in recent years, there are unique struggles that LGBTQ people experience throughout the process of adopting. For example, along with systemic biases, adoption laws vary from state-to-state with some states retaining laws that create religious exemptions for adoption providers. This allows agencies to refuse adoptions to LGBTQ individuals on the basis of religious freedom. 

However, the Supreme Court has ruled that states must legally recognize adoptions across state lines and public support of LGBTQ adoption is steadily increasing. GayRealEstate.com intends to fight for adoption parity until all individuals are treated equally. 

The GayRealEstate.com team works to identify the best LGBTQ-friendly cities and communities in each state and region of the country and cultivates relationships and deep networks in each, to provide their clients the support they need to find ideal residency. The service GayRealEstate.com provides is one of many that LGBTQ individuals can use to bypass the potential for anxiety, discrimination and inequitable treatment. 

GayRealEstate.com continually strives for the protection of all people, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identification, and will continue to advocate for the full and equal treatment of all individuals: in real estate markets and all areas of life.
