City of West Hollywood Co-Sponsors Legal Name and Gender Marker Change Clinic Tomorrow

The trans pride flag was designed by Monica Helms, an openly transgender American woman, in August 1999 and exhibited at the 2000 Phoenix LGBT Pride event.

The City of West Hollywood and Bet Tzedek, a nonprofit legal services organization, along with pro bono legal volunteers and members of the LGBT Bar Association of Los Angeles, will host a free legal clinic tomorrow to help individuals complete the paperwork necessary to apply for a legal name and gender marker change. Volunteers will also assist with completing fee waiver applications.

The clinic will take place on Tuesday from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Plummer Park Community Center, 7377 Santa Monica Blvd. near Fuller, in Rooms 5 and 6. It is free, but RSVPs are required, as space is limited.

According to the National Center for Transgender Equality, approximately two-thirds of transgender survey respondents reported their identification documents are not up-to-date. Accurate IDs are essential to opening bank accounts, starting new jobs, enrolling in school, traveling and more.
