Who We Are

Lambda Legal is a national organization committed to achieving full recognition of the civil rights of lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender people and everyone living with HIV through impact litigation, education and public policy work. Since 1973, Lambda Legal has used impact litigation and other advocacy tools to decriminalize same-sex relationships, fight HIV discrimination, win marriage equality, and advance the rights of transgender people. Contributions from supporters nationwide enable a growing budget of approximately $19M. Clients are not charged for legal representation or advocacy and Lambda Legal receives no government funding. Headquartered in New York City, Lambda Legal has regional offices in Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, and Washington, DC.

We believe that serving the full breadth of the LGBT and HIV communities requires cultural competency and enthusiasm for diversity of all kinds. Part of what makes us successful is an understanding and awareness that civil rights go beyond face value. The intersectionality of discrimination doesn’t end with sexual orientation or gender identity – it reaches into the depths of race, religion, national origin, education, and class. Acknowledging that this reality exists in the world and in our organization, we prioritize awareness and proactive commitment to counteracting them.
