- Dennis Williams: Single, Black Fatherhood. One Man's Surrogacy Journey. Patrick Huey 52:51
Dennis Williams breaks open a lot of taboos in our conversation about his journey as single, black, gay man navigating through IVF and Assisted Reproductive Strategies to become a father. With a startling clarity of thought, he takes us through the maze of doctor visits, legal de-entanglements, and identifying egg donors and surrogates to achieve his dream. Along the journey with him, he asks us to explore how we define our own worth and what parental and societal expectations we wrestle with on a daily basis. He asks us to reimagine and expand our thoughts of what a family is and with whom and how we create our families.
In a poignant plea, he asks us to open the channels of empathy within ourselves for each other, for this is the way we build true sisterhood and brotherhood. This is how we create humanity. How we literally create humanity. And in the face of uncertainty and heartbreak, keep knocking on the doors, because on the other side is your son.
