It was great meeting everyone at the Starting Queen Families Town Hall last night! The event was put on by the Yale LGBT Affinity Group and the Yale Fertility Center. It was chock full of medical and legal advice about starting a family through surrogacy and third party donation. Many thanks to LaShawn Bushay for inviting the GFP to speak.
There will hopefully be another Town Hall about queer families in six months, so if you weren’t able to attend this time, we would encourage you to look out for the next one!
