"I realized that as a single transperson I was no longer a first class citizen anymore. Indeed, if gays and lesbians were second class, how was I perceived?"
- Barbra "Babs" Casbar Siperstein (GLBT activist)
What is LegalOut? As recent legislation attests, the GLBT community continues to fight for the same civil rights that millions of Americans enjoy. Until that goal is reached, there's a critical need to provide gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, and transgender individuals and couples with alternative means to protect their basic family and relationship rights. That's where LegalOut comes in. We're an online resource center that provides the GLBT community with assistance in preparing essential legal documents through a simple, easy-to-follow online format. Those include estate planning, living wills, domestic partnerships, financial and healthcare power of attorney, co-parenting agreements, and many others. In addition, we also provide information and resources to keep our members informed, empowered, and protected, from where to find a qualified lawyer to the best GLBT community links.
Protect Yourself with Legal Documents No one likes to think about times of personal crisis such as illness, accidents, or even death. But such planning is essential for gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, and transgender individuals and couples, whose basic civil rights, depending on state legislation, can be severely restricted. For the GLBT community, questions like, Can my partner visit me in the hospital?; What will happen to my assets if I die without a will?; and Who will take care of my children? are often answered -- by default -- the law, not by your personal wishes. But with LegalOut, you determine the answers. Through our simple, easy-to-follow online tools, you'll quickly and easily create affordable legal documents for estate planning, living wills, domestic partnerships, financial and healthcare power of attorney, co-parenting agreements, and many other critical issues -- all in the privacy of your own home.
