Our very own Dr. Thornton was interviewed for an article this past weekend (1/14/18) about the rise of LGBT families in Connecticut seeking family building options through surrogacy. While there is no official numbers on how many same-sex couples are having biological children, fertility clinics in Connecticut have seen an increase in gay clients in the past several years.

The Art of Fertility This is part of a new and ongoing collaboration between The Arts Paper and the New Haven Pride Center (NHPC). Each month, they will bring you a story about how Connecticut’s institutions, lawmakers, and festivals are changing LGBTQIA life in the state and beyond. This month (and just on the heels of the city’s PRIDE weekend), they start with a look at CT Fertility, a center in Trumbull that is helping LGBT+ couples conceive statewide, nationally, and internationally. This piece was also published in this year’s PRIDE Guide, available across town.
