LGBTQI

Human genetic and assisted reproductive technologies affect LGBTQI communities in a number of specific ways.

LGBTQI people’s use of assisted reproductive technologies has also helped to challenge discriminatory ideas about what counts as a family, and the meaning of biological relatedness.
