Legal Name & Gender Marker Change Clinic

Are you LGBTQ and looking to change you legal name or gender marker to one that matches your authentic identity? Does your legal name get in the way of applying for certain jobs, school, and public benefits? Do you just want to change your gender marker but don’t feel like interacting with the court system? We’ve got you covered!

The Hudson Valley LGBTQ Community Center and Legal Services of the Hudson Valley are teaming up to bring you this legal name and gender marker change clinic. We’ll help you with the name and gender marker change process so you can successfully complete the process and move forward with your life.

Those below a certain income may also be eligible for financial assistance in the matter, but there’s assistance available no matter your situation.
