Free Legal Help For LGBQT in Preparation For The Next Four Years
Submitted by: lalapancakes⚫ 1 year ago in
As the country holds its breath wondering what the new Trump presidency will bring, the most vulnerable of the American community, the LGBQT people, are preparing for the worst. The hashtag #TransLawHelp on twitter is available to help trans men and women with passports, naming documents, and other administrative needs and it’s available pro bono.
Goodhue said she was impressed with how quickly the online effort came together, but she knows not everyone in the community will be able to take advantage before Jan. 20 when Trump takes office. Just to legally change forms is a fairly complicated and costly process with verification from doctors needed and about $500 for change fees and expedited service, she explained.
A crowdsourced open Google document has developed with a list of lawyers and resources six pages long for trans people looking for legal help.
