About the talk

Trans* people may desire to become genetic parents, just like cis people. The gradual abolition of sterilisation requirements for gender recognition, combined with assisted reproductive technologies, has made this choice an increasingly viable option. This presentation will explore some of the questions that trans* procreation poses to European legal systems, tracing in particular the emerging meanings of legal parenthood vis-à-vis the life experiences of those involved. By using trans* procreation as a lens, this presentation will also create room for reflections on broader socio-legal issues, including the normative and gendered character of birth registration practices and stratified legal parenthood.


To participate in the event we kindly ask you to register.
