Chapter 1 explores the reproductive options that are available to queer people in Australia who want to conceive children. While queer people can now formally access Australian fertility clinics due to liberalizing laws and the disease entity of “social infertility,” a range of barriers remain, such as ongoing de facto discrimination, high costs, and donor gamete shortages. Tracing these complexities, this chapter examines how Australia's stringent governance approach to assisted reproduction, influenced by the country's settler coloniality, delimits reproductive options for queer people.
