Recent series profiles LGBTQ family building
The Province newspaper recently published a six-part series on assisted reproduction and becoming a LGBTQ parent. They called the series “Pride and Joy” in celebration of these newly emerging families.
The series includes:
Part 1: “One Family’s Story” – the long road of gay and lesbian family building
Part 2: “What Makes a Parent” – families created using third party reproductive options including donor eggs and sperm, and surrogacy
Part 3: “The Rare Canadian Sperm Donor” – the shortage of Canadian sperm donors
Part 4: “Womb for Hire” – international surrogacy
Part 5: “A New Type of Pregnancy” – transgender pregnancy
Part 6: “The New Family Tree” – families with two moms and two dads (or donor “uncles”)
