On Saturday, April 29th, join GLAD staff and attorneys at the annual Transgender Lives Conference for a name and gender marker change drop-in workshop for transgender people seeking to update their identity documents.

Participants will have the opportunity to meet individually with attorneys and GLAD staff to seek assistance in updating their Connecticut birth certificates and other legal documents.

What can you expect from the workshop?

  • An opportunity to review applications and documentation with attorneys and trained staff.
  • Space to ask questions and learn more about the process to change gender makers on Connecticut and federal ID documents
  • A chance to be connected with attorneys who are knowledgeable and affirming

Given time and space constraints, we are unable to address legal concerns outside of those related to updating birth certificates during this workshop. However, our GLAD Answers manager, Daniel Weiss, will also be on site to help connect those with additional questions to resources and information beyond what is covered at the legal clinic.

Many thanks to all the attorneys who are part of this work, and to our partners the Connecticut Women’s Education and Legal Fund (CWEALF) and Connecticut Trans-Advocacy Coalition (CTAC)!
