The article concerns issues related to same-sex parenting. Families made up of lesbians and gays raising children are a challenge for traditional sociological definitions of family. First, the author will present suggestions as to new definitions that would perhaps be more adequate to the present times. Then, she will quote some basic data that emerge from the research on same-sex parents and their children. Additionally, some statements of Polish lesbians and gays about their attitude towards same-sex parenting will be introduced.
