Pride Month: Supporting LGBTQ+ Family Building

Supporting ALL members of our community this Pride Month and every day

Nearly 5% of the US population identifies as part of the LGTBQ+ community.  

Many are aware of the social, emotional and mental health issues that accompany the self identification of being lesbian, gay, trans, bisexual or queer, but most outside of the community don’t consider how this affects a person’s ability to create their family.

Fertility assistance is required by many. Conceiving often requires discussion about donors (egg and sperm) and surrogates (also called gestational carriers) as well as decisions regarding the use of known vs anonymous donors.

Educating ourselves about these concepts is the way to support and empathize with our peers.  This is a pivotal aspect of many people’s lives, and by taking this into consideration, we may gain better insight into what our loved ones, friends, classmates or colleagues are going through.

We’re proud to support the LGBTQ+ community, not only by providing a safe place to discuss family building goals, but also as a supporter of our local LGBTQ+ Center of OC in their endeavors to support the people of Orange County!
