20th October, 18:00-19:15: 'We Are Family': Professor Susan Golombok in conversation about her new book (online event)

Our understanding of what makes a family has changed dramatically in recent decades. But what has the impact been on children? In We Are Family, Professor Susan Golombok describes researching new family forms from the 1970s to the present day, and concludes that families with lesbian mothers, gay fathers, transgender parents, and single mothers by choice, and families created by IVF, donor conception, and surrogacy, are just as likely to flourish as traditional families, and sometimes more so – although the children from these families will often face prejudiced attitudes from others. This book tells the stories of these families – their struggles and their triumphs – while celebrating love and family in all its wonderful variations. Join us for an online evening event to celebrate the launch of this inspiring new book. Professor Susan Golombok will be in conversation with Dr Marcin Smietana, followed by questions from the audience.
