The New York based non-profit parenting “boot camp” called Men Having Babies will host its first event in Asia, after an increased interest in surrogacy.
Men Having Babies will provide assistance, advice, and support to gay couples wanting to become parents. The sessions will be in Taipai, Taiwan on March 9 and 10, according to Reuters.
“Our conferences are not meant to persuade to become parents ... they are meant for people who already want to become parents (and) to make the process more accessible and easier,” founder and executive director, Ron Poole-Dayan told Reuters. “People are starting to realize .. the fact that they’re gay doesn’t mean that they’re not going to be able to have a full life including starting a family and having children.”
Men Having Babies holds around seven conferences a year in the U.S., Europe, Canada, and Israel, and will now host annual conferences in Asia.
