What is Surrogacy? Webinar

The webinar was hosted by Michelle Goodwin of Deaf LGBTIQA along with Brilliant Beginnings UK and our favourite Deaf Dads Sam and Matthew Calder-Bray from the instagram account @twodeafdads.

Brilliant Beginnings UK will talk about surrogacy information in the UK, and the NGA Law which is a legal firm that deals with surrogacy law and will explain the legal side of surrogacy.

Then Sam and Matthew will share with us their personal surrogacy journey.

Make sure to watch this very informative video!

Deaf LGBTIQA Survey is now LIVE!

We have a BIG announcement! Its finally here, all the work done by our fantastic volunteers behind the scenes. (photos below)

Our nationwide survey is ready. If you are deaf, living in the UK and identify as being on the LGBTIQA spectrum, then we want to hear from you!


The purpose of this consultation is so that we can find out from you what you would like us to do, what issues deaf LGBTIQA+ people currently face in the UK and help us to make an action plan for the future!

By taking part or sharing it with others, it really helps us to know what you think!

Many thanks to largely in part from the grant given to us by the LGBT+ Consortium.

HPV vaccine information

Here’s the above video done by one of our members Damian on the importance of having the HPV vaccine.

HPV vaccinations are available for anyone under the age of 45.

If you are gay, bi or you are a man who has sex with men? Under 45? We want to tell you about HPV (human papillomavirus) vaccinations (not to be confused from HIV, as that is different). The (HPV) vaccine is being made available throughout the UK through sexual health clinics to gay, bi or MSM (men who have sex with men) who are 15 and up to 45 years of age. After 45, the vaccine is less effective. You will need 3 doses and different time periods.

The vaccine will help to prevent HPV infection which can cause genital warts and HPV-associated cancers (such as penile, anal and throat). It is especially important for those who are living with HIV Please book an appointment at your local Sexual Health clinic to get these jabs.
