[Australia] - Announcing the 6th Surrogacy for Gay Men Forum in Melbourne – Saturday 5th November 11am to 2pm

Jeff, Ethan & Rodney Chiang-Cruise
Gay Dads Australia is pleased to announce that we will be holding the 6th Surrogacy for Gay Men Forum in Melbourne onSaturday 5th November 2011 from 11am to 2pm.

We are pleased to be able to hold this important forum at the JOY 94.9 function room in Melbourne’s CBD.  JOY 94.9 is Melbourne’s Gay and Lesbian Radio Station and is an amazing supporter of gay dads and rainbow families. We are thrilled that they are supporting us in holding this forum.  Please support them.

We will be announcing full program and registration details shortly but if you are interested in finding out more about becoming a dad via surrogacy then please mark this in your diary.  We will have some great speakers to help you learn about surrogacy in general, surrogacy in Victoria, surrogacy in USA and surrogacy in India.  Light refreshments will be provided.  The forum is more than just a chance to learn about surrogacy, it is also an opportunity to meet and network with guys going through the process as well.

The forum as always will be FREE and put on entirely by volunteers.  

Last year we got around 90 guys coming along to the forum (some are now dads!!!) and we expect that there will be a similar demand for the forum this year.  When registrations open it is important to register early to ensure a place as numbers are limited by the size of the venue.  We will certainly try to accomodate everyone we can.

You can email me directly on rodneycruise@gmail.com to indicate your desire to attend however we will open formal registration later in the week.

Every years we get guys from around the country (and from outside Australia) flying in for the forum and we certainly encourage guys interstate to come if they can.  

A big thank you goes to Adrian Perillo and JOY 94.9 for their amazing support to help us put on this forum.
Further details and registration forms will be posted on this website within the next week.
