Gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (GLBT) individuals have been socially constructed as “family outlaws”, but in relation to partnership and parenting, far-reaching changes have taken place in the last decades, and research has kept an attentive eye on these changes. This chapter introduces the issues regarding families of choice and families of origin. It also introduces the chapters in the book that present research on families of origin and shifting discourses and constructions of family. It also suggests directions for future research and critical thinking.
