BONUS EPISODE • FERTILITY FEST THE QUEER FAMILY*
The Queer Family is not a new phenomenon. The LGBT community has been making babies and parenting for a long time. But the combination of legalised gay marriage and advances in reproductive science has led to an exponential growth in surrogacy, donation, co-parenting and adoption amongst same sex couples and singles.
The artists join a panel discussion with Carole Gilling Smith, Consultant Gynaecologist and Medical Director of Agora Clinic and Francesca Steyn, Head of Nursing at the Centre for Reproductive and Genetic Health (CRGH) – both leading voices in the industry on assisted conception within the LGBT community and is chaired by James MacKenzie Blackman, Chief Executive of Scotland’s Eden Court Theatre and gay dad of two through adoption.
