LGBT Family Building Expo
 

The 2015 LGBT Family Building Expo

Take a step on the road to parenthood at our annual LGBT Family Building Expo. At this event, devoted to helping LGBT people of all backgrounds achieve their dream of parenthood, you’ll be connected with resources across the family building spectrum. Whether you are interested in adoption, surrogacy, foster care or alternative insemination, you’ll get the guidance you need.

Talk to competent providers, attend workshops and consult with lawyers and medical providers who know how to work with you to navigate some of the decisions and challenges on your path to building your family. Be sure to hang around for our cocktail reception following the Expo and meet other community members on the road to parenthood!
