Mills-Koonce’s research explores lesbian and gay (LG) families and/or the transition to LG parenthood. Research hasn’t dabbled as frequently into “… the ecological and cultural influences on family and individual functioning,” the abstract explains. Mills-Koonce plans on using national datasets (e.g, the U.S. Census and American Community Survey) to examine statewide changes in LG family structures while simultaneously observing how LG families correlate with state-level socio-political climates and public policies.
