Philadelphia Family Pride presented two collaborative programs for LGBT parents and prospective parents as part of the 2013 Equality Forum.
Both took place at the University of the Arts in Center City Philadelphia in Room 706 in Terra Hall, 211 S. Broad Street.
“Surrogacy for Prospective LGBT Parents” from 1:00pm – 2:15pm
A panel of specialists and parents who have used a surrogate will help you answer the question: Is surrogacy for us? Attendees will gather more information about the process, costs, emotional investment and logistics of surrogacy.
“LGBT Parenthood” from 2:30pm – 3:45pm
A panel of LGBT parents who created their families in different ways share stories about their personal journeys to parenthood and discusses the benefits and challenges of the paths they took.
Following the workshops, PFP hosted the very popular and free Prospective Parent Happy Hour from 4:00-5:30pm in the lobby of the nearby William Way Center (1315 Spruce Street). This gave workshop participants and presenters a chance to chat informally. Snacks and drinks were provided.
