This chapter explores the issues of homo and transparenthood. Homoparenthood is a term which includes all those families in which at least one adult who defines him/herself as homosexual, is the parent (biological or social) of at least one child. Equally topical and important is the relationship between parenthood, transgenderism and transsexuality. Transparenthood occurs when at least one adult, the mother or father of at least one child, decides to make the transition from one gender to the other.

Keywords:   Homosexual parents, transparenthood, transgenderism, transsexuality, sexual orientation
