Recruiting set to start for an international gay surrogacy parenting research

Men Having Babies is proud to have offered to assist an international group of researchers set to start a large longitudinal study on gay surrogacy parents in the UK, France, and the Netherlands. The 3 year study will commence in January 2013 and will focus on male couples who became parents through surrogacy, with control groups made of heterosexual surrogacy parents.
The researchers leading these studies include distinguished professors such as Michael Lamb (University of Cambridge), Henny Boss (University of Amsterdam), Martine Gross (Centre Nationale de la Recherche Scientifique), and Oliver Vecho (University of Paris). The study is a collaboration between Cambridge University, University of Paris, and the University of Amsterdam, and it is funded by Open Research Area in Europe for the Social Sciences (ORA).
Some of these researchers have already taken part in well known LGBT parenting related research (including the US National Longitudinal Lesbian Family Study with Nanette Gartrell), and we all hope that this study will break new ground by investigating emerging family forms created by this form of assisted reproduction.
