Pragmatic Suggestions derived from the Study „Wir sind Eltern!“ on the Life Situation of Rainbow Families in Cologne
Author: Dominic Frohn
The article gives a condensed and practically oriented overview of the results of the Cologne-based study “Wir sind Eltern” (“We are Parents!”): Its main focal point is on the perspective of LGBT* parents from Cologne, and it offers proposals on how to improve the life situation of rainbow families. At first, the methodical background of the study is briefly outlined, then, central demographic aspects are presented, and results pertaining to the family system’s structure as well as the family and overall life situation are explored. Finally, ten pragmatic recommendations are presented in a modified and updated form, and their feasibility in Germany examined.
