In the weeks since the presidential election, we have heard from many who want to know what this new era of conservative domination in the federal government will mean for the transgender community.
The short answer is that we have no way of knowing. But we can make an educated guess. The coming years likely mean heightened vigilance, resistance and struggle — efforts trans people know all too well.
Lambda Legal will be there with you and for you.
In fact, for the first time in our history, we are offering direct legal services in the form of Empowerment & Passport Clinics — including covering the cost of passport applications — to respond to the urgent need to help members of our community get identity documents that affirm and reflect their correct gender.
Even with the urgency brought on by the changed political landscape, we know that each person has to decide what’s right for them. No person or policy should dictate whether and when to amend identity documents.
