The 3nd Brussels Conference on Parenting Options for European Gay Men


MHB will once again team up with several European partners to offer a comprehensive parenting conference in 2017. More than 220 attendees from 12 countries attended the 2016 MHB Brussels conference on Parenting options for European gay men. The conference was widely covered by the Belgian media, allowing us to raise the need for ethical and effective surrogacy legislation around Europe, amid increasing political debates across Belgium, Italy, France, and the Netherlands regarding surrogacy and assisted reproduction. Representatives of seven European LGBT associations expressed frustration over the currently limited fatherhood options gay Europeans have, and joined MHB in calling for ethical and effective European surrogacy parenting options. The call was informed by ethical parameters for the use of surrogacy that were developed by MHB in collaboration with an advisory committee of surrogates, two of whom took part in the conference. Our 2017 Brussels Conference will once again provide a wealth of unbiased information and access to a wide range of relevant service providers. It will be offered in an expanded two-days format, at the centrally located Hilton Grand Place hotel. Proceeds from sponsorship and exhibiting fees will benefit the Gay Parenting Assistance Program and are earmarked for prospective adoptive or surrogacy parents from Europe
