Abstract

The strong likelihood of parental disapproval of a daughter's lesbianism indicates that for gay women intergenerational dynamics may be uniquely challenging and complex. In this qualitative study, 40 lesbians in 20 couples were interviewed about their relationships with their parents and their partner's parents. Respondents reported that since coming out, their parents' attitudes about their lesbianism shifted over time from profound disapprovalto ambivalence. Partners emerged as a beneficial influence on most of the respondents' intergenerational relationships. Social workers assisting lesbians with intergenerational difficulties ore advised to include the client's partner in treatment. Additional clinical implications are discussed.
