Gay man in Singapore wins landmark child adoption case

A gay man has won a legal battle in Singapore to be legally recognised as the parent of a child he fathered through surrogacy abroad. The Singapore High Court ruled on Monday that the 46-year-old gay man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, will be able to adopt the child, reversing a previous decision from a lower court. The man has been in a relationship with another man for more than a decade—the two have been living together since 2003, according to the South China Morning Post—and used his sperm to conceive the child through surrogacy in the US.
