Negotiating Lesbian and Gay Parenthood in China: Individual Agency,

Economic Privilege, and Reproductive Justice
Queer families raising children represents a recent development of increasing LGBT visibility in urban China. This presentation will examine how Chinese lesbian and gay couples pursue and achieve parenthood in a new social context. Acknowledging the lack of social recognition and institutional supports in participants’ negotiation of queer parenthood, this research focuses on the formation of queer families in relation to state governance in China and argues that the potential of these families to challenge the heteronormative structure has been largely compromised.
Dr. Wei Wei is a Professor of Sociology at East China Normal University in Shanghai.
