MHB Overcomes Pandemic Constraints to Hold a Hybrid Conference in Taipei

Against the odds, this October Men Having Babies successfully hosted hundreds of people in person in Taipei for the second annual Parenting Options for Asian Gay Men conference. Exceptional public health conditions in Taiwan created the opportunity, while innovative use of technology and diligent preparation allowed MHB to seamlessly incorporate more than 50 surrogacy and IVF experts from around the world who spoke and exhibited remotely. Meanwhile more than 200 attendees enjoyed an almost "pre-COVID" experience, alongside activists from partnering Taiwanese organizations and MHB staff (following a strict two-week quarantine). Additionally, dozens of Asian prospective parents from other countries, who originally hoped to attend in-person, attended the panels and breakout sessions online. In-person and remote attendees and speakers also benefited from real-time interpretation via the advanced Interprefy platform. The unique hybrid model was introduced by MHB to continue offering educational and financial support for prospective gay surrogacy parents worldwide, alongside specialized virtual conference technology the organization utilizes for events where public health conditions are more restrictive.  

Book Guide: MHB's Essential List of Surrogacy Books for Adults and Kids

We want to share the extensive book list we created with our families and dads-to-be, and that we feature at book fairs at our conferences. Our recommended reads showcase the gay male surrogacy journey, both in the realms of literacy for children, and informative reading for prospective gay parents. Each book has been selected and screened by the team at MHB, and a summary provided for each potential reader.
