The aim of this review was to know what the main academic studies have discussed about the relationship between sexuality, gender and family. A survey in SciELO, PePSIC and LILACS (between 2011-2016), in which were combined key words that related to the theme, then it was first carried out an exclusion for titles and later by summaries. After this process the items that remained were read in full and 28 remained as a sample for this review. Three categories were formulated through the studies retrieved: Profile publications; Sexuality and gender: approach and important aspects; Family and exercise of sexuality and development of the children's gender identity. Studies indicate significant family influence in the children development of sexuality and gender identity, and ratify the persistence of power relations within the family, supported by the inequality in the relationship between the genders.

Keywords : Sexuality; Gender identity; Family.
