Gay men receive dramatically less paternal leave than heterosexual or lesbian couples

A research study on paid paternal leave found that while heterosexual and lesbian couple received similar amounts of leave, gay male couples were typically offered shorter leaves.

Researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) studied 34 Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) countries, 33 of which have paid parental leave policies. The United States is the one holdout.

In their findings, published in the Journal of Social Policy, researchers found that just 12% of those countries offer the same number of weeks for parental leave as heterosexual couples.

Lesbian couples fared better, receiving the same time off in just under 60% of the countries.
