The UK capital London has taken first place, according to a new report.

Lifecake – a visual storytelling platform for childhood photos and videos – conducted a survey of 2,000 people to gauge the evolution of modern family life in the UK today.

An overwhelming 75% of respondents declared that the UK is the best place for LGBT+ parents, with London selected as the best city for them to live in.

It was followed by Brighton, Manchester and Oxford, with Bradford – Belfast coming in last.

The results found a progressive shift in attitudes towards how UK citizens perceive and treat LGBT+ families – alongside not limiting the gender boundaries of young children.

42% of young people said they’re in favour of gender-neutral parenting, with 70% of men and 65% of women in agreement that men are taking a more active role in parenting than a decade ago. The number of stay-at-home dads has risen from 111,000 in 1993 to 232,000 in 2017.

In 2015/16, 9.6% of all adoptions in the UK were by LGBT parents. Between 2007/2008, there were only 80 adoptions by same-sex couples in England. By 2015-2016, this increased to 450.

“The family dynamic in the UK has undergone a dramatic change within a relatively short space of time, with a shift away from the traditional nuclear family”, Lifecake co-founder Ed Botterill said of the research.

“Our study shows how social attitudes have evolved to reflect new these new family types.”
