A Legal Guide for Trans People and Their Advocates

Within this Transgender Rights Toolkit, readers will find answers to many questions that transgender people and their advocates may ask as they navigate through life. This toolkit is meant to be a resource and advocacy tool designed to educate and empower a community often left outside the walls of power.

While transgender people are gaining visibility in the media, the daily lived experiences of transgender people is fraught with discrimination and oppression. They live and work in a world not suited to meet their basic needs. Through education, advocacy and litigation, Lambda Legal’s Transgender Rights Project has been able to ease, overcome and combat the pervasive discrimination that transgender people face.
