Celebrating Passage of the Child-Parent Security Act in New York

In April 2020 LGBTQ+ families in New York celebrated a significant win; a rare spark of good news amid the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic. With the support of New York lawmakers, families, and advocates, the Child-Parent Security Act was signed into law, legalizing gestational surrogacy in the Empire state and modernizing parentage law for all LGBTQ+ families.

In this video message, we check in with some of the advocates that helped us achieve this historic win.

This win was only possible because of your generous support. If you are able, please continue to support Family Equality as we fight for legal and lived equality for LGBTQ+ families nationwide.
