We have spoken before of our love for Michael and Wes Johnson-Ellis – two incredible gay fathers who are on a mission to support the LGBT+ community. They are working tirelessly to ensure that everyone within the LGBT+ community, who wants to become a parent, is fully informed, supported and fairly treated. Their determination to help others achieve their dreams of parenthood connects so deeply with us, as this is at the heart of everything we do at ivf babble.
We are just thrilled to have found these wonderful men, who we are proud to say, are now part of our ivf babble family, and they are here to support you. So, let us stop gushing, and instead tell you about their groundbreaking event taking place in September.
The Modern Family Show 2020 has arrived, and this is the newest family creation exhibition on the block!
Although, the organisers are marketing this as anything but an exhibition. In fact, it’s very refreshing and true to its name. Michael and Wes have never shied away from hard work and are passionate about supporting not only the trying to conceive community through their amazing work and established online brand TwoDads.U.K, but also the loyalty to their community (LGBT+). “This is a big deal for us, and it was a risk, but it’s the right thing to do and the response has been overwhelming. The Modern Family Show is not an exhibition; this is an event, and we’re here to celebrate family creation on all levels” says Michael the Co-Founder of The Modern Family Show.
They are taking residency at the iconic 8 Northumberland on the on the 19 September 2020 just off Trafalgar Square, London.
The Ballroom sets the scene for the main area of exhibitors, the backdrop of the impressive Modern Family Stage is breath taking. This one-day boutique event is the only UK family creation show exclusively designed for the LGBT+ community, informing attendees about UK and International family creation options, with a real emphasis on Education. Wes proudly boasts “Visually this will be one of the most stunningly unique exhibitions of 2020, creatively – nothing even rivals it, we’re working with one of the most admired LGBT+ fertility allies, particular the lesbian and trans communities, to create some of the most incredible educational material to support everyone from the wider LGBT+ community’”
Carole Gilling Smith Medical Director from The Agora in Brighton comments “I am delighted that Michael and Wes have taken the baton to create a safe space for all those in the LGBT+ community to come and talk openly and honestly to professionals about their dreams to create a family.
At the Agora we believe that everyone, whatever their gender or sexual orientation, should be empowered with the freedom of reproductive choice, whether it be now or in the future. What I love about this event is that the organisers are doing just that by putting education at the top of their priorities”.
Whether its Surrogacy, IVF/IUI, Sperm or Egg Donation, Fertility Preservation, Trans-Parenting, Adoption, Fostering, Co-Parenting or Solo Parenting; The Modern Family Show is the only UK event dedicated to the LGBT+ community, and all under one roof. And we’re so proud of what this will achieve for so many needing this type support.
Michael proudly states “In the coming days we’re excited to be revealing the sponsors of The Modern Family Show, which we were delighted were all secured within four days of the preview of the event, testament to type of show this will be, and the support this will provide”.
So make sure you save the date – 19thSeptember – tickets are on general sale from the 6th April 2020. In the meantime, if you Michael and Wes will keep you posted with news and information both here at ivf babble and on their website TwoDads.U.K.
