Dustin Lance Black has criticised UK surrogacy laws after announcing that he and husband Tom Daley are going to make their family bigger, apparently via surrogacy. Speaking to the Attitude Heroes podcast Lance condemned British laws which do not recognize commercial surrogacy. It was shocking for him considering that LGBT rights in general (spousal rights, employment, etc.) in Great Britain are two steps forward than in his native USA.“That was a bit of shock to me. That in a place like this, that seems so progressive and so far ahead still to the United States on things like employment, housing, security and marriage. But on surrogacy, it’s not available in the same way,” said the filmmaker.
