5/11/20 Thriving as an LGBT Couple

It’s hard to believe, but time has really flown since 2015 when same-sex marriage was legalized across the United States, breaking down an important barrier for millions of couples. But, this progress doesn’t mean that LGBT couples have stopped facing disapproval and discrimination. In fact, the continued legacy of homophobia and heterosexism can stress relationships. Host David B. Feldman interviews psychologist Dr. Sharon Rostosky, co-author—with Dr. Ellen D. B. Riggle—of Happy Together: Thriving as a Same-sex Couple in Your Family, Workplace, and Community, about how LGBT couples can thrive, address the stresses caused by our larger society, and bring love and support to their kids.
