Pride & Joy
Choosing The One
Monday, 29 June
Freddy meets Louie and Ellie, a transgender man and a cis woman, who are trying to start a family.
But navigating fertility treatment as a queer couple isn’t always easy. And then there's the tricky business of choosing a sperm donor…which for Louie and Ellie can only mean one thing: it's spreadsheet time.
Freddy also meets Dev, who is trans and not too interested in parenthood. So instead, he decided to become an egg donor.
