On January 23, 2016: 4:00-6:30 PM and January 24: 9:00 AM-6:00 PM, the Third Annual San Francisco Surrogacy Conference and Expo will be happening at SOMArts Cultural Center (934 Brannan Street, San Francisco). HIVE’s Shannon Weber will be there during the Expo and will have some of our awesome materials, like this guide for men living with HIV.

“Our Family Coalition and Men Having Babies are teaming again to offer a program dedicated to biological parenting for gay men — and this time for and expanded day and a half format. Our educational conferences offer a rare opportunity to benefit from a wealth of information from unbiased non-profit organizations, alongside access to a wide range of relevant service providers. The conference is based on a format MHB developed over the last 10 years in NY, Chicago, Barcelona, Brussels and Tel Aviv. This year we are adding several in-depth workshops and panels that will appeal to prospective parents on different stages of the process.

Proceeds from sponsorship and exhibiting fees will benefit the Gay Parenting Assistance Program and Our Family Coalition.

Note: while the event is organized by gay parenting organizations, non-gay prospective parents are welcome and will no doubt highly benefit from it as well.” (menhavingbabies.org)

Advance registration is recommended for both days.
