Gender Research: LGBTIQ people`s experiences with assisted reproductive technologies


More and more people want to use assisted reproductive technologies (ARTs). This study aims to examine the experiences, practices and possible improvements of preserving fertility and achieving reproduction of queer and transgender people in 6 EU-states (Austria, Estonia, Poland, Spain, Sweden, the UK).  This enables the comparison between more liberal countries towards LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer) rights and others that are restricting reproductive possibilities for queer and transgender people. A key aspect of this study is to document the experiences of queer and transgender people using ART.

This is important because there are very different kinds of guidelines and regulations regarding ART in the diverse European countries. The aim of this project is to develop an inclusive common European framework for ART based on the knowledge, experiences and ideals of queer and transgender communities in each of the 6 states.
