This guide is an informational publication for youth and young adults struggling with the many questions and social phobias of growing up in an LGBTQ family constructed through the use of Assisted Reproductive Technologies (ART). This guide is crucial because the field of ART is constantly evolving. With scientific and technological advances, the number of available methods to create a family grows. While this is beneficial to many people who may not otherwise have had the option of raising children, the repercussions on the children should not be forgotten or ignored. Social norms often lag behind scientific discoveries, but children’s wellbeing and self confidence should not become collateral damage in this process.
