Abstract

TARNOVSKI, Flávio Luiz. Les coparentalités entre gays et lesbiennes en France: le point de vue des pères. Vibrant, Virtual Braz. Anthr. [online]. 2011, vol.8, n.2, pp. 140-163. ISSN 1809-4341.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1809-43412011000200007.

The families formed by same-sex couples have become an important topic of the social, political and intellectual debate in France. In this article, I argue that same-sex families express historical trends that have significantly changed the organization of family relations in France. From a survey of French homosexual fathers, this article analyzes the specificities of gay and lesbian co-parenting, which consists in agreements for the generation of children that will be raised separately by the father (s) and the mother (s). After the analyses of the particularities of the parental project, the contours of the family and the experience of fatherhood, I propose a brief discussion about the limits of an exclusive filiation model.

Keywords : co-parenting; gay parenting; homosexuality; fatherhood; family.
