The study conducted by the Australian Institute of Family Studies (AIFS), found a now strong evidence that same-sex-parented families constitute supportive environments in which to raise children, the Sydney Morning Herald reported.

Meanwhile, the research by Deb Dempsey found that growing up with same-sex parents had a "negligible influence" on a child's emotional wellbeing, peer relationships, capacity to behave appropriately, self-esteem, stigmatisation and overall mental health.

It was found that lesbian parents were more involved parents than their heterosexual counterparts, had better problem-solving skills and reported higher-quality relationships with their children.

The researcher said same-sex parents were also more conscious that their children could face discrimination in their lives.
