Donor Conception

"Unknown Identity: The Untold Life of a Donor Conceived Person" — Lizzy Forman will address her privilege as a member of a new generation of kids conceived through the use of sperm banks, and the challenges of growing up with no idea whose DNA lived within her. Lizzy is an advocate for donor-conceived people across the U.S. and has helped create and gather a group for donor-conceived people in New York and surrounding areas. She will attempt to reach out to people from all walks of life and help them understand what it means to be donor-conceived and struggling with identity, whether one is aware of being donor-conceived or not. This is a community that has been buried since its conception, says Lizzy, who adds that she will do her best to reveal it and give the audience new insight into donor-conceived friends, family and loved ones.
