The Professional Tools page has a new resource available: an LGBTQ Legal Resource Guide.
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) people navigate a complicated and quickly-changing legal milieu. Legal rights and laws vary by geographic location, and certain legal procedures are unique to this population. This guide provides resources for LGBTQ individuals to discover laws, procedures, and rights impacting them.
The guide begins with current reference books, followed by websites for national organizations that advocate for LGBTQ rights. The bulk of the guide is dedicated to state-specific resources organized by topic. Resources in this section are all Internet URLs and include government and nonprofit organizations. In most cases, links are provided without commentary on current law or procedure because they are likely to change. Following the link will allow the reader to discover the legal landscape at that moment.
