Together with Equality for Children, OUTLaw Network invites you to join us for “Four Families: a Series on LGBT+ Parental Rights”, a four-part series on the rights of LGBT+ parents and their families.
In each session we will meet a different parent and explore the laws affecting that family and others in their situation. We will also hear from a legal expert in relation to the underlying legislation and the legal processes available to gain recognition. Finally, at the end of each session there will be a panel discussion hosted by Ranae von Meding, CEO of Equality for Children and an opportunity to ask questions.
Hosted over Zoom, each session will be held on a Wednesday lunchtime (1-2pm) during May. You are invited to attend all four sessions, or just those which interest you. A Zoom link will be shared with those who register via Eventbrite.
Wednesday 5 May: Automatic rights – Which LGBT+ couples automatically get parental rights?
Wednesday 12 May: Who’s in? – Which LGBT+ couples may apply to get parental rights?
Wednesday 19 May: Who’s out? – Which LGBT+ parents cannot apply to get parental rights?
Wednesday 26 May: Surrogacy – Can LGBT+ people get parental rights via surrogacy?
Coinciding with the celebration of International Day of Families on 15 May, we hope to highlight the existing options for LGBT+ families as well as the need for further legislative change and protection.
Registration is essential via EventBrite.
