The decision to start a family is an exciting, scary and often emotional one, and as an LGBTQ+ individuals or couple in China, the path to parenthood can come with its own unique questions to navigate.

Equip yourself with as much info as possible, know your resources and hear from parents who have been there at this Saturday’s Rainbow Family Forum at Andaz Xintiandi, Shanghai.

As part of the ShanghaiPRIDE event line up, the forum will delve into topics including the decision to raise kids and different medical options available. At the panel hear from three speakers: a Chinese gay father on his experience with surrogacy overseas and raising his child here; Asia-Pacific Rainbow Families Forum founder Bess Hapworth on the rights and options for rainbow families in the region; and fertility expert Dr Sandy Chuan on how same-sex parents can help meet the needs of their kids from a medical perspective.

The talk will be followed up with a Q&A session and is free to attend, but be sure to RSVP first. Click here for more info or to sign up.
